Report from Vancouver Sun
April 17, 2013
Greyhound in Boston Marathon
"SFU psychology professor Rachel Fouladi was only about 600 metres from the finish line of the Boston Marathon but she was stopped when the second bomb exploded.
“In my mind I feel like I finished, even though I didn’t,” she said. “There are more important things in life like family and friends and loved ones, and although this is something I wanted to do, it wasn’t important.”
Although Fouladi won’t be in the Sun Run on Sunday because of final exams, she said she would go for a run at SFU to show support and invite students to join."
