TREG Marathoner Joins Forces for Boston Victims

Last week’s events at the Boston Marathon touched the nation in ways that are indescribable. We watched as runners who have pushed their limits to qualify, crossed the finish line at one of the nation’s most iconic running events.

Unfortunately, out of the over 23,000 marathon starters; only 17,580 actually finished. TREG agent, David Phillips was one of those people, and although he was able to complete the race, he was profoundly affected by the events that transpired just minutes after he crossed the finish line.

“I was at the Boston Marathon only a block and a half away from where the first bomb exploded. My parents arrived at the first bomb site at 7:45 in the morning in an attempt to get a spot as close to the finish line as possible. They left the site only 15 minutes before the first explosion to find me. When the bombs went off, one of my friends had just crossed the finish line. As you can imagine, it was a very emotional week for everyone involved”.

Since his return to Hampton Roads, David has connected with other local runners and fitness enthusiasts and is helping the Tidewater Striders Running Club support the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Their goal is to raise $26,200 in one week which represents $1000 for each of the 26.2 miles of the race. David sees this as his way to help those that were affected by the tragedy that he and his family just narrowly missed.
