An Intimate Experience of the Boston Marathon Bombing 6 mars 2014
Par Megan Roth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
With Boston 2014 coming up in April, this is an absolute must read for anyone wanting to understand the collective feeling and aftershock of what occurred last year at the Boston Marathon. The book weaves through the hills and turns of the course-map, following different runners from their pre-race hotel room all the way to the finish line and medical tent. Through these intimate, personal accounts, I couldn't help but feel the tension of the inevitable moment of 4:09:43. I felt the clock ticking as I read along, hoping that the runners whose stories I followed would be safe from the explosions at the end. The tears began to build at page 87 when the first bomb explodes. As a reader, I knew it was coming, but I was still in a state of disbelief. That's because the book took me into the marathon and placed me in the shoes of those runners whose minds were far away from the possibility of a bombing. I was carried into the rhythmic cheers of the crowd, the excitement of elites like Shalane Flanagan and Rita Jeptoo as they sped nervously through the course. I was almost lost in the marathon as though I was running it, and if you've run one before you'll likely get the same feeling.

If you haven't run a marathon before, you'll still feel a sense of intimacy with the runners profiled, as well as a sense of dread when you learn that many changed their goal times to 4:10, the time of the race when the first bomb exploded. While these runners believed they were making wise athletic decisions, they remained oblivious to the fact that they were running toward mayhem, not finish-line glory. Higdon writes with accessible detail, at a pace and cadence that's easy to follow, runner or not.

I was shaken by the Boston Marathon bombing, but I felt far removed from it before I read 4:09:43. If anything, the book allows you an entrance to that day and a connection to the small details, the ticking seconds, and the human heartbeats that made the event on of this nations most unforgettable days.

Emotional and riveting! 26 août 2013

An amazing depiction of what the Boston Marathon is like on Patriots Day, and specifically on April 15, 2013. As a runner who was in the bombing, this provides some sense of motivation to press forward and run Boston 2014. The majority of people can't grasp what we experienced. This helped me realize there are many others like me---who went through this horrific event and came out on the other side. It was accurate, factual and emotional all at once. That is a difficult portrayal with words. Loved reading it.

if Triumph can be drawn from Tragedy, Hal Higdon has done it... 25 septembre 2013
Par Thomas L. McEwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Full disclosure - I'll generally read anything Hal Higdon writes. I started way back in 1972 with "On the Run from Dogs and People," and have been fan ever since. This is a book about runners, people who don't run for any reason other than they are unable to go thru life not running. It long ago stopped being about health or weight loss. It became part of their (our) essence. This is a book about a community of runners, several communities of people in the greater-Boston area and the shared bond of a legendary road race. While the senseless violence of the bomb attacks remains in the background, Higdon never sensationalizes the loss of life or wounds suffered by so many that day. The narrative also puts into perspective how trivial the discomforts and pains of the race seem against such a backdrop, yet simultaneously demonstrates how thousands of strangers, in town for a few hours or days, could feel so connected to their hosts, and affected by the suffering inflicted on them If this book doesn't make you want to put on some shoes and go for a run, hug somebody from Boston, or say a prayer for the Victims and the First Responders, there is no soul left in you.

Beautifully Inspiring 23 août 2013
Par Chandra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As a fairly new runner, this is the only running book I've read. I've learned the running community is full of all walks of people, and are a happy, encouraging bunch. So, I picked this book to hear their stories from one of the best, Mr. Hal Higdon. The book allows us a glimpse into their days before the marathon, their journey during their runs, and the day after. As a runner, I agonized over their hills, bloody blisters, and their moments when they realized the race was over, whether they had crossed the finish line or not. You will laugh, and you will cry. Most certainty, runner or no runner, you will root for the runners in the 118th Boston Marathon in 2014.

Our stories told by a fellow runner 24 août 2013
Par A. E. Cancellieri - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Hal, you did good, fellow runner. You captured our memories and nightmares from that day, and gave the oft unspoken running community a voice. The body and tail of the serpent, snaking its way 26 miles and 385 yards, not the head finishing with the laurel crowns and prize money. Those who struggled to attain a qualifying time, or those who qualified themselves by fundraising thousands and thousands of dollars for their selected charities (I, in the latter population). Tears fell as I read and reread sections. You incorporated our stories with bits of history that anyone could appreciate - runners, non-runners, locals and visitors.
