Update on a Tragic Day....

Thank you everyone for the concern.  All members and support staff of the U of IL wheelchair racing team are safe and accounted for. They are set to depart from Logan Airport at 9:30 to return home to Champaign, IL this evening. Actually 9 team members are flying to London, England to participate in a marathon there on Sunday.  Congratulations to Tatyana McFadden for her win in the womens wheelchair division today. Fantastic race.  What a shame that her first running of Boston is marred by this tragic bombing.

A tragic day on so many levels.  All our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.  Just a few years back, I would have been sitting in the finish line bleachers with my Dad, brother, Marty and other friends and family.

I love Boston so much!
