MARATHON WATCH: Arredondo back at finish line
Question of the Day
A look at the 118th running of the Boston Marathon.
WAVING FLAGS: Carlos Arredondo and his wife, Melida, are standing in the viewing stands just past the finish line waving small American flags. Arredondo was wearing his trademark cowboy hat and a Boston Strong shirt.
The two were at last year’s race, handing out flags, when the bombs went off.
Arredondo quickly ran to the aid of Jeff Bauman and helped rush him in a wheelchair to medical attention, a scene captured in an arresting AP photo. Bauman lost his legs.

PLAY BALL: The local baseball team has its traditional Patriots Day morning start time Monday. Instead of wearing “Red Sox” across the chests of their home uniforms, the players’ jerseys read “Boston,” just as they did for the tribute to bombing victims at Fenway Park last April 20.

LIVE FROM THE COURSE: Bill Kole, AP’s New England bureau chief, is running the race - and tweeting from every mile. He reports from the start: “The gun booms, the runners roar; we’re off. I’m bobbing in a sea of fist pumps and high fives. Boston’s back.”
