I’m not sure how I can put into words what to feel right now. Sadness, anger, disgust, disbelief, the list goes on. I can’t help but to feel complete confusion and ask why, over and over again.
I wasn’t there and thankfully my friends are safe, but I just need to get it out there. I feel like this was an attack on my own family, because this entire running community is my family. It’s your family. It’s our family. And this is completely senseless and gut wrenching, but we will not let it hold us down.
The Boston Marathon holds a special place in my heart, as do all of you, and I can’t imagine all of that being taken away. So with that, just a note to say I love our running community, please be safe, and my prayers are with everyone in Boston.
Tomorrow, hug a runner. Then your mom. Then your dog. Then the person next to you. Then go for a run. And then read this.
