The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

The Sweetest E-mail a Marathoner Could Hope For

Third place age-group award of 2013 Boston Marathon

Today I received the sweetest e-mail a marathoners could hope for.
For four months I told everyone I had finished fourth in my age division at the 2013 Boston Marathon, broadcasting it on Twitter and Facebook and even saying it in a radio interview. But all the while I knew it wasn’t true. Boston had made an error in my time. I’d actually finished third, hence a podium position. But given the tragic blast there, where so many lost so much, I didn’t feel like raising a big whine about it. The workload at B.A.A. must have been overwhelming, I figured.
Too, leg cramps had ruined my run, and I didn’t feel like I deserved to win anything. I should have run better. I accepted fourth.
But Boston did eventually correct my finishing time, which put me in third position. It was a narrow victory with only a 16 second margin.
