Born to run

Diego Rivas, E’16, grew up in a family of run­ners. But he didn’t pick up the sport until he enrolled at North­eastern. On Monday, he’ll com­pete in his first Boston Marathon, ded­i­cating his run to his marathoning friends in Boston and to the vic­tims of the 2013 bomb­ings. “For me,” he says, “it will be an honor.”
