Boston Marathon Bombing: Map showing the Location and Time-stamp of the Surveillance Video of the Suspects

See video here
The Boston Marathon Bombing was a cowardly act, and we all want to see justice served to those responsible.

Now that the FBI has released details of the bombing suspects, I decided to create a map that shows the likely location and timing of the of the surveillance video of the suspects, in hopes that somebody who was nearby at the time may have noticed them.


If you have any information at all regarding the men shown in the attached photos and video, you should immediately submit them on https://bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov. As the FBI website states, no piece of information or detail is too small. You can also call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), prompt #3, with information.

Great 5 1/3 mile NYC UWS run!


For those in the great city of New York City, specifically the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and into running (ok, I just limited my global audience for this post!), I have an inspirational -- or at least not monotonous -- 5 1/3 mile run for you!

Half of the run is in Central Park and the other half along the Hudson River Greenway.  I'm showing 74th Street and 108th Sreet as the two places to cross back and forth between the park- and water-side legs, but you can adjust your numbered blocks up and down to suit your starting point and still keep the run about 5 miles



And the elevation profile of the route involves some decent hillwork (ok, by Manhattan standards anyway!). A 333 feet elevation gain all in little-ol' Manhattan!  Oh yeah!


Enjoy!
