Boston Marathon: WEEI.com reporter live-tweeting progress in marathon


The 118th Boston Marathon got underway this morning on Patriot’s Day with a massive turnout for the event one year after the tragedy that occurred when a bomb went off near the finish line last season.

In the middle of the mass of humanity running the 26.2 miles is veteran Boston columnist and author Rob Bradford from WEEI.com who is not only running the marathon to raise money for the American Liver Foundation, but he’s also calling in his progress to an editor who is tweeting his progress and providing updates to his march to the finish line.

Awesome stuff. Follow Bradford on Twitter to keep up with his progress as he is approaching the 15 mile marker.
