    Just wanted to say many thanks to a runner in your group, Joe Smith. We were almost at the finish line of Boston Marathon yesterday when all the bombings happened. He never left my side for a second. Made sure I made contact with folks and got me to where I needed to be. So Joe if you get this, even though we never got to finish that last mile, I am grateful you stuck by me from mile 17 on. :-) Many thanks ;-) from
    Your Air Force officer friend Shannon :-)
