John Habib's City Sports: Livingston runs promote post-Marathon healing
Bauman may be the best known of the Marathon bombing survivors, partly because of the iconic, if gruesome, images of him being rescued by cowboy-hat-wearing Carlos Arredondo, and, more significantly, because of his role in helping to identify one of the bombing suspects. In the past few weeks, Bauman has made public appearances to wave a giant Bruins banner before a B's playoff game at TD Garden and to throw out a ceremonial first pitch — along with Arredondo — before a Red Sox game at Fenway Park.
For Telge — part of a group of runners associated with her sons' Manchester school, Green Acres Elementary, who ran the Marathon — the memories of April 15 are fresh, her sympathy for Bauman and the other victims powerful. She recalls how, reunited with her family, she quickly reached her car and escaped the city.
Weeks later during dinner, Telge said, the boys, who also are part of a Green Acres Elementary running team, expressed a desire to do something to help Bauman. From that, the idea of a family-themed running event and fundraiser was borne.
"It's about helping Jeff and bringing runners together in a show of unity," she said.
TWO BELOVED Manchester sports figures — Butch Joseph, the former longtime city athletics director and football official, and Joe Sullivan, retired from teaching at Manchester High West and covering sports for the New Hampshire Union Leader — continue to undergo care after recent hospital stays.
The entire sports staff at the New Hampshire Union Leader wishes both men a speedy recovery.
WITH THE American Legion baseball practice scheduled to start on Sunday, June 9, Manchester's Henry J. Sweeney Post and Post 79 have announced tryout dates. Sweeney Post's will be at Piscataquog Park tomorrow at 9 a.m., and Tuesday and Thursday at 6 p.m. Post 79 will hold tryouts at Memorial High Tuesday through Thursday, also at 6 p.m.
