The 2014 Boston Marathon from Natick, Massachusetts.

With 36,000 athletes and over a million people cheering them on, this years 2014 Boston Marathon was simply stunning. A perfect representation of human spirit. Congratulations to the survivors who completed the race, the families who made their way back to Boylston Street to cheer on the athletes, and the people who their spirit fly in the face of loss.

I woke up early, headed to Dunks for some eats, and made my way down 135 to document the joy. The morning was sunny, warm, and cheery. People were smiling, chatting, and energized with the upcoming race. Once the race started the wheelchairs and handcycles made their way through town. The Elite women followed, the Elite men, and finally the masses of athletes. Here’s my takeaway from the day.

The Boston Marathon 2013 captured from Natick

It’s been almost a year and I’m ready to look at the images from the 2013 Boston Marathon to put together a post on my blog. I captured the images from about 10am (a late start) to 1:30pm. I was home shortly after that, started downloading, selecting, editing, and then the news broke about the tragedy. What followed was days worth sleuthing on what happened, following the hourly updates, twitter updates, reddit mega threads, online police radios, and the final takedown coverage. Now, as I reflect back and look at my the day, I reconnect with our unbridled ability to push ahead, no matter what pains we experience. Running 26.2 miles is a commitment in mind and body. I’d like to think that we all have the ability to push through and reach our goals.  - Namaste!

Big Papi captured it best “This jersey that we wear today, it doesn’t say Red Sox, it says Boston. We want to thank you, Mayor Menino, Governor Patrick, the whole police department for the great job they did this past week. This is our f*ckin’ city and nobody is gonna dictate our freedom. Stay strong!”

Boston Marathon Training day and Ruckathon for Carry The Fallen

I woke up this morning, Saturday and had my usual Dunks breakfast spoils. The morning was warm, the Boston marathon runners were out, and the skies were blue. I came home, found my cameras, strapped them on and head out to document life in Natick. I headed downtown, worked my way to St. Patricks, then headed down 135 to lake Cochituate, then back to Natick Center from 10am to about 12:30. There was a lot of activity and the energy was infectious. Among the runners were troops and families supporting them who Ruck’d for 12 hours along the marathon route. Check out Carry the Fallen and Active Heros for more information about helping our veterans. Here’s some images from the day.
