Quote Of The Day
“I’m a big fan of the marathon, and I run the marathon every year. … It’s a really special place for me. I love the Boston Marathon finish line and everything it represents. And it didn’t deserve to be covered by snow, so I shoveled it off. … I think it’s cool that a ton of people have gotten behind the idea and support the idea that the finish line isn’t just a strip of paint in the road, that it means so much more to us as a community of Boston and of runners. … I’m no hero, I’m just a nut who loves the marathon. The real heroes are the people who were out there clearing the streets and sidewalks, the [Boston Police Department], and the [Boston Fire Department] who risk their lives every day to keep people safe.”
