“The elite performers were not only running in the Boston Marathon yesterday, they were on the sidelines, observing the finishers, manning the EMS vehicles and staffing the city’s hospitals. When disaster struck, the doctors, nurses and emergency personnel went to work—performing at the elite level for which they have trained. In the race to save lives, the first responders are the champions.”
