Attorneys in Boston Marathon show how commitment, endurance overcomes tragedy

Each of these attorneys had very personal reasons for taking part in the 2014 Boston Marathon, particularly after the deadly attacks which took place last year at the race’s finish line

The Boston Marathon this year represented a lot more than just another race. It was a testament to the determination of runners and fans, that despite last year’s deadly attacks, a Boston tradition will continue. 

Among those taking part were attorneys from throughout the United States. One was Jack C. Marvin, a partner at Stinson Leonard Street, a law firm in Wichita, Kansas. He ran the Boston Marathon last year. It was his sixth time running the marathon and he finished the race. Afterward, he went into the medical tent for cramping.  He declined medical treatment, as he just wanted to get back to his hotel room.
