Team Brookline/Brookline Library Foundation Runners
All Team Brookline runners, including the five Library runners, are safe and accounted for. Our hearts go out to those who were harmed, and to their families, on what should have been an occasion of joy and celebration. Our sincerest condolences.

David lives in Brookline with his wife Debbie – a longtime Brookline resident and BHS math teacher - and their 3 boys who are avid readers. He manages a product line for Analog Devices. As an avid runner since high school, he remembers watching Boston Marathons from an ice cream store along the route and thinking someday he might be able to do that. This year he will!

Rachid works for the Town of Brookline and is a long time library user. He is thrilled to be running "in honor of my good friend and running buddy, Chuck Flaherty, Director of the Brookline Library. Together we ran several Boston marathons and covered more miles than Bill Rodgers did in his entire running career (or close). Unfortunately Chuck will not join me this year as he is recovering from knee surgery. We hope to see him running next year!"
