Bolingbrook HS teacher, Boston Marathon runner: 'Tough to comprehend'
John Sullivan crossed finish line hour before bombs blew, back in school Wednesday
BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook High School teacher John Sullivan checked his watch as he rounded the home stretch, striding down the left-hand side of Boylston Street and crossing the Boston Marathon's finish line.
Sullivan was ecstatic. The web design, animation and graphic design teacher – who celebrated his 50th birthday in March – had set a personal record at the nation's oldest marathon, breaking the three-hour mark and clocking in at 2:59:08.
He then stood at the finish line, panting, taking in the breadth of his accomplishments.
