I’ve always had a lot of affection for the city of Boston.
Since I was a child, I have been a fan of the Boston Celtics as Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish led them to multiple championships in the 1980′s.
It’s a beautiful city and is one place that I would love to visit one day, but my heart was lifted even more when I watched the city respond with such resilience in the lead-up to the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.
To see the way the Boston Red Sox organisation and fans honoured the survivors of this tragedy was wonderful.
To see runners from all over the world determined not to be kept away from Boston by fear is magnificent.
