Adidas sorry for email saying 'you survived' Boston Marathon

Adidas apologized for "an insensitive email subject line".

On the 17th of April, 50 years later, she ran and completed the Boston Marathon again. "Adidas you may want to rethink the subject line", tweeted Mike Denison.

The sportswear giant admitted its choice of words had been "insensitive" and said it was "incredibly sorry" for sending the document. It encouraged runners to purchase Boston Marathon gear like shirts and jackets. The message from the brand came a day after the completion of the marathon event on Monday.

That's because on Tuesday, people who ran the Boston Marathon were sent a very, well, disturbing email from Adidas. The sports goods company stated that each year's Boston Marathon reminds people of the faith and resilience of the running community, reported Boston Globe.

At least two survivors competed in this year's race. It was reported that Chechen-American brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev detonated two home-made bombs at the event.

The Huffington Post reported that the company has since apologized for the email. Based on the data from Running USA, female runners make up fifty seven percent of participants in running events in 2015. "It became the best thing in my life", she said. I had long hair, wore lipstick and eyeliner to the start line.
