I had a post all planned today about my running, but the news of the Boston Marathon tragedy diminished my joy. I know that the lives of many will be forever changed today – runners celebrating their accomplishment, family and friends celebrating the victory of their loved ones. All the celebration changed so quickly, so tragically.
Today I had to take a late lunch from 3:30 until 4:00. Ironically enough, I was in the gym on the treadmill when the blasts exploded in Boston. I learned about what happened when I got home. It’s so hard to believe. I ask myself what’s happening to people? To the world? What is this world coming to? As I sit and reflect on the race I’m to run on Saturday, I can’t help but think what will be going on in the minds of the participants. I know I will run, to honor those affected by the tragedy in Boston, in the best salute I know how.
