‘Holy Cross student who ran marathon, blogs to heal’

NECN/Channel 3 | Worcester Mag

April 24th, 2013 by 


Andrew Cook '15 ran his first Boston Marathon this year.

Andrew Cook, a sophomore at the College of the Holy Cross who ran his first Boston Marathon this year and crossed the finish line just minutes before the two bombs exploded, opens up to NECN/Channel 3 about his experience. A blogger for the Holy Cross website, he wrote a post on the many runners and emergency responders who were heroes that day.

“The bombing is what everyone is focusing on, rightly so, but what I will remember are the heroes,” shared Cook.

Cook told the reporter “everyone will process the tragedy in their own way but he will continue to focus on the good of the day.” He says that’s what will carry him through to next year’s marathon. “I’m absolutely doing it again in the future… It was a great experience… it was unforgettable, even before everything that happened at the finish line, it was just a great, great day.”

Cook also opened up to Worcester Mag about his experience.
