Boston love

I can't stop staring at this picture.

From Boston magazine

Every pair of shoes in this picture was worn by someone at this year's Boston Marathon. The shoes tell the story of the people who have Boston in their heart, now more than ever. You can read here about how they gathered the shoes for this cover.

If you are still looking for a way to help, here are just a handful of the many ways:

The One Fund -- Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.

Run For Boston 5K (real and virtual) -- It is our goal that 100% of race entry fees will benefit the Who Says I Can’t Foundation and directly support the rehabilitation of those who lost limbs as a result of the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon.

Boston stands as one -- Purchase a "boston stands as one" t-shirt through Adidas. All proceeds go to The One Fund listed above.

Keep running, Boston -- Another shirt option for purchase. Again, 100% of proceeds are donated to The One Fund. 

Edit: And thanks to Jac from Challenged and Running in the Bike Lane for the tip that you can contact Boston magazine at bmagdigital@gmail.com if you would like to order a poster of the above image. 


  1. "We will finish the race" - a perfect choice of words. Thanks for sharing more ways we can help.

  2. I love that cover as well. I will definitely buy the poster when it's released! Ironically, I blogged about that cover today as well. Great minds!

    1. Thanks for the tip about the poster!

    2. You're very welcome. I can't wait until it's hanging on my wall!

  3. I love that pic! I'll have to order a poster for my office.

  4. Love that shot! Thanks for mentioning Run for Boston 5k! The virtual race will be getting underway soon!

  5. I grew up in Chicago, but can't make it to the real 5k, so I'm planning on participating in the virtual one! I participated in a fun run on Monday. I'm loving all of this support!

  6. Thank you for sharing ways to help. I work in Boston (mere blocks from the marathon's finish line) and live in Cambridge, and run throughout both cities. I can't wait to get my hands on this month's issue of Boston magazine. I'm also looking for Boston Strong tech T-shirts, have you happened to find one/any?

  7. I love this picture too! We have a local 5k on Sunday for Boston, I am looking forward to being there and meeting up with some other runners that ran Boston too.

  8. I"m so proud of the running community, together, we've all raised a lot cash for the victims and their families. GOTTA LOVE RUNNERS!
