Lightning Laces in Boston

Update: CTD and the Lightning Laces are still shocked about todays explosion in Boston, and our hearts go out to all of those affected. We are glad to report that Will and Peter are fine and finished the race before the blasts.

CTD and the Lightning Laces Running Team are thrilled to announce that our own William Greer will be running in the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15! In order to participate in the oldest and most prestigious marathon in the nation, a runner must fulfill a qualifying time requirement, which William did during the San Francisco Marathon last year.

And that's not all: Peter Sagal- the host of the NPR quiz show, “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me”- will be William's sighted guide! The match up was facilitated by Team with a Vision, an initiative of The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Sagal's already been tweeting about this upcoming dynamic duo; follow his pre-marathon quippery @Peterruns.

In the days leading up to the run, we'll be posting updates, so stay tuned here, or join our Facebook page.
