On April 17, 2017 I had the pleasure of traveling up to Boston as a volunteer for Team Achilles and I captured as many moments with the members from all the chapters along with The Freedom Team. It was a beautiful day to spectate. I had the opportunity two years ago to watch the race and enjoyed it as much, if not more this time because I am part of that team who overcame very difficult challenges to get to the finish line.
As I did last time, I took the train from Worcester to Yawkey and watched the race at mile 25 and then walked to the finish line later in the afternoon to see several athletes cross the finish line. I didn’t expect to see as many Team Achilles members as I did and am so proud of everyone for their success in crossing the finish line of the 121st Boston Marathon.
Enjoy the recap video highlighting the presentation of the Freedom Team at Fenway Park on Sunday to the last Achilles athlete I captured running down Boylston Street. I can’t wait to capture moments like these again next year! One day I wish to also be a runner to cross the line at the Boston Marathon myself. Until then I will gladly cheer everyone on!
