THE STORY:

On Monday April 21, 2014 I will be running the Boston Marathon again as a member of Team Eye and Ear.  I will be finishing what I started last year.  On Monday April 15, 2013 I set out to run and complete my 10th Boston Marathon in memory of my sister, Erin. I ran 26 miles, but unfortunately did not have the opportunity to cross the finish line. I was on Boylston Street, feeling strong and sprinting to the finish line, when I saw and heard both bombs. I stopped in my tracks.

Unbeknowst to me, my sister and brother-in-law, as well as their 2 young children and my young son were at the finish line. They were waiting to surprise me at the finish. They were right next to the 2nd bomb that went off. By the grace of God they were not injured. They witnessed the tragic events of that day. I truly believe my sister, Erin, was our Guardian Angel that day.

Erin passed away in June 2010 at the age of 49. At age 9 Erin lost sight in her left eye due to an accident in which she got glass in her eye. She received wonderful care as a child at Mass Eye and Ear. At age 40 Erin underwent surgery again at Mass Eye and Ear.  Her left eye was removed and replaced with a prosthesis. The surgical and esthetic results were remarkable.

Thus, on Monday April 21, 2014 I will once again be on the starting line of the Boston Marathon in Hopkinton. I will be running Boston again to raise money for Mass Eye and Ear, in memory of my sister Erin, as well as in memory of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.  Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated. I will be starting my 11th Boston Marathon...and this one I will finish...Siobhan Strong!
