One comment on “Boston Marathon runners don’t have to qualify for next year’s race

  1. I’m sure people who are trying to qualify will say this is bad news because it’s less chance they get in, but I think the BAA did the right thing.

    It stinks that those who were there had the opportunity taken from them, and after all, they DID qualify to run the marathon (just the year before the 2014 qualification date range). Plus, even if they weren’t injured or hurt or even see anything to do with the bombings… they are probably dealing with it emotionally, just the fact that they were there. I like the idea, they deserve a second chance.
