OMG! Look What Boston Marathon Runners Just Did.

Boston magazine had almost wrapped up its May edition on April 15. That’s the date the Boston Marathon was attacked. The front page was scrapped and a new one commissioned. It had to be a page that captured the iconic race and reflect the incredible people of Boston who came together during the tragedy.Check out the new front cover below. Take a moment, scroll to the bottom of the page, and read the story of how this running-shoe tribute was created. Generally I wouldn't advise anyone to share sneakers, but these 120 shoes deserve to be shared with the whole world.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
