“We have witnessed incredible bravery, strength, and resilience from the people of this city. The B.A.A. continues to extend its deepest sympathies to all of those who were affected by this tragedy. As we continue to address matters relating to the 2013 Boston Marathon, we also will begin to turn our attention to the 2014 race.”
