​You just cannot do stuff like this. 

The Boston Marathon occurred this past Monday, as the city came out to support the runners and celebrate the community holiday as they always do. Of course, it was also the fourth year after the tragedy of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombings. 

As the community continues healing from the horrific events of that fateful day, the Marathon and its tradition persevere. With the 2017 events now in the books, Adidas sent out the following congratulatory email to participants.

The subject was absolutely terribly worded.   

​​Who was the genius that signed off on this email?! How could you possibly not realize what you were sending out to community that is still dealing with such a tragedy?!

I think I'm making a safe assumption when I say that most runners won't be shopping for any official gear from your site after this one Adidas. Good luck covering for that massive mistake.

Watch the heartwarming moment a London Marathon runner stops to help exhausted competitor over the line

  Watch the heartwarming moment a London Marathon runner stops to help exhausted competitor over the line This could be the moment the 2017 London Marathon is remembered for. Selfless competitor Matthew Rees, who was representing Swansea Harriers running club, gave up his own race to help an exhausted fellow runner over the line. With just metres to go to the finish line, Rees scooped up David Wyeth — who was visibly shaky on his feet — and encouraged him over the line. The pair were later aided by a race steward.The moment was captured on the BBC's coverage of the London Marathon and BBC Wales tweeted a clip, which showed Chorlton Runners' Wyeth complete the 26-mile event.
