Bradford NH Man Ran but Unable to Finish Marathon

marathonJoe Conway of Bradford NH ran the Boston Marathon on Monday, but missed completing his run by 500 yards. Conway said it was 45 minutes before he found what had happened, although he heard the second explosion and saw the smoke.
It was Conway’s return to running the famous Marathon after 22 years; he was running with the Norris Cotton running team raising money to fight cancer. Conway lost his wife to cancer and promised he would never give up on her and he hasn’t. Despite being unable to finish the race, he raised $12,000 for Norris Cotton, $2,000 more than his goal of $10,000. Conway said he is going back next year; he won’t let what happened ruin the event.
