TODAY's Takeaway: Natalie gets her Boston Marathon bib; Savannah gets baby advice
1. One family is particularly close to Natalie’s heart as the TODAY anchor trains to run next month’s Boston Marathon. As part of TODAY’s Shine a Light series, her run will honor the Corcoran family, victims of last year's bombing.
“I don’t think we’ll ever get the normal that we had before but I think we’ll definitely find a new normal,” Sydney Corcoran, whose leg was badly injured in the blast, told Natalie and Matt.
