Urban Wellness Clinic celebrates Boston Marathon spirit with elite runner Sarah Cummings

The Boston Marathon is truly a celebration of the human spirit. This is the case in any year at this event. However, as we all know, the 2014 race meant to so much more to those who participated, to the city of Boston, to the running community around the world, and to all who were affected in some way by last year’s attacks. This race was a triumphant comeback for so many, and being able to witness the celebration in person makes me really appreciate the enormity of this event.

Walking along Boylston Street on Saturday showed me just that. Runners, families and fans from all over donned their Boston Marathon gear proudly, posing for photos in front of the famed finish line. Victims of last year’s attacks made appearances at the expo, all smiles as they wished runners luck or event picked up their own race materials. The sense of community was tangible.

I was unable to stay for the race itself, but was luckily able to watch the live TV coverage and follow friends on the Boston Athletic Association’s website. To recap, UWC’s elite athlete Sarah Cummings came away from the 2014 Boston Marathon with a huge PR. Sarah ran 2:34:57! Take a look at her splits below:

Sarah’s race shows us all that we need to take things one moment at a time, remain even-keeled as the challenging ups and downs of the race roll on. We are so proud of her!

In case you missed it, New York Athletic Club’s Meb Keflezighi WON the race in 2:08:37, becoming the first American man to win the event since 1983. What a year for an American man to win in such stunning fashion!
