Yesterday morning the One Run took place in Boston and allowed runners the chance to complete the final mile of the Boston Marathon. Kyle was one of the lucky participants who was able to cross the finish line on Monday, April 15th but he wanted to take part in the One Run to show support for those who were denied their finish. They also needed cheer-ers to come out make the finish feel authentic. It was a cold and rainy morning but there was still a great turn out. I have to be honest, the moment Kyle’s parents gave me a cowbell I started to consider myself a professional sideline cheerleader.
Kyle was honored with the opportunity to carry the Chinese flag in remembrance of victim Lu Lingzi and I couldn’t be more proud of him. He talked about his experience on NPR yesterday. He was right on the mark when he said that nothing will stop Boston.
