The Chairman of Sedgefield Harriers, Ean Parsons, was one of a number of runners from the North East taking part in the Boston Marathon, completing his run about 40 minutes before the two bombs exploded at the finish line. By then was two blocks away with his wife Viv but, like every runner taking part, he was caught up in the aftermath and deeply affected by what happened.
"After giving it my all for 25 miles, I entered Boylston St. for the run in to the line. The crowds were immense, cheering and clapping. I told myself not to worry about a few seconds and to take it all in, so I looked left and right, waving to the grandstand and noticing the marathon shop that I took a photo of the previous day. 50 minutes later the bombs went off under those people."
"I first 'discovered' the Boston Marathon in 1984 and have aspired to it since, just like thousands of others. I was lucky to qualify and fulfil a dream to run at the event. The people of Boston are fantastic all along the course, all of the legends are true. To think of all of those dreams and what has happened is sad and tragic for the victims, the runners and the city. 117 years of Boston magic can't end like this - what's the betting it will be on next year? "Viv and I would like to say thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts, concern, messages and best wishes."
