The run must go on

In the days following the Boston Marathon bombings, Jon and Leslie Woodard debated whether to go through with plans to participate in Pat’s Run in Tempe, Ariz., concerned about their safety. Even before law enforcement officials tracked down the two suspects in the Boston bombings, the Woodards made a decision: They were running. Pat Tillman gave up millions of dollars in the NFL to fight for his country and the Woodards weren’t going to let terrorists prevent them from joining the run in his honor. “We decided that we had to do it,” Jon Woodard said. “We couldn’t let something like that stop us, not for a run like this.” – AP
