A year ago yesterday I was in Boston running 26.2
miles. The Boston Marathon is special. It is the gold
standard. It is the only one, for which you have to qualify. It is an honor to run.
Hearing about the bombings at the Boston finish lines makes
me not only sad but angry. It makes me angry for the runners and
people who were cheering them on. The focus is no longer the
accomplishment of completing the world's premier marathon. A day of
celebration turned into a day of fear, and that makes me sad.
However, I don't think this should keep people from doing
Boston next year or cheering on the runners. In fact I think more people
should. Show the person or people involved that we will not be
shaken. Not as runners, not as a city and not as a country.
