Remembering Boston

April 16, 2013

What happened yesterday in Boston hits really close to home. Even though I don’t personally know the thousands of people who ran the marathon, I feel the running community and all the spectators/volunteers/race personnel are one big family. I had a lot of close friends who ran the marathon, some were still on the course or at the finish line when the unthinkable happened. Running is our safe haven. We use it to escape the realities of the world without fear. What was supposed to be a joyous celebration for runners, whether it was their first time in Boston, or their 20th time, turned out to be the complete opposite. Running through the streets of Boston is a privilege that only a few are able to experience and the spectators make up a huge part of that experience. All we can do is move on, pray for those who were affected and keep on running. Go out and run today and dedicate a few miles to those that didn’t get the chance to cross that finish line yesterday.
