Carlos Arredondo – Last year in the pouring rain, I completed the Boston marathon in 6 hours 30 minutes.

This year I hope to finish in 5 hours.

I am running in remembrance of my two sons: Alex, who was killed in the war in Iraq in 2004, and Brian, who died by suicide in 2011. I’m running for every wife, child, parent and sibling who is grieving the loss of their loved one due to a military related death.
