B7
Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, a longtime New Englander, was watching the Boston Marathon on Monday when the afternoon’s events changed the race, and the area, forever. Bruschi was at the Lenox Hotel near Boylston Street as runners from his charity, Tedy’s Team, ran in the race. “That time, the four-hour mark, that’s when in my opinion the true spirit of the Boston Marathon comes into effect,” he said on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Monday night. “All of the runners are running for something, something that’s inspired them.
