Sam, Elise, and Marathon Monday.
On Monday, at 10:40 a.m., Sam Oglesby began his first-ever marathon in Hopkinton, Mass. At 2:50, two bombs exploded at the finish line in Copley Square, dashing the hopes Sam and thousands of others had of finishing the race and destroying the lives of many others. Sam’s girlfriend, Elise Greenberg, and her friends and family spent a frantic hour weaving through locked-down Boston unable to reach Sam or his family. Finally, everyone was reunited – safe and sound – in Back Bay.
