Bill Iffrig is the older guy you saw knocked to the ground near the finish line at today’s Boston Marathon. He was just a dozen feet from the first blast. I thought we’d hear his story at some point.
He’s 78, and today was his third Boston Marathon. After a pause on the deck he got up and walked across the finish line. His chip time was 4:03:47, delayed somewhat by bomb. Wow.
