I've got running on my mind my friends. Maybe it's because THE running event of the year is coming up on Monday.. Maybe because I haven't run more than 2 miles in the past few months. Or maybe it's because I have a way cool pair of NEW running sunglasses sitting on my counter begging to be used (more about these in a sec). Either way, once a runner, always a runner and currently I'm really missing training and racing! This Monday is the Boston Marathon. This race is a big deal every year in the world of running, but this year more than most, all eyes will be on Boston. Last year's tragedy still weighs heavy on my heart...how someone could terrorize such an event is just beyond me. People run to heal, run to get stronger, run to find themselves. And I guess that's why the community has come back stronger than ever.
If I know runners - Monday will be a powerful day. Instead of running away what possibly could happen, runners are running faster and stronger towards the finish line. There will be stories of comebacks and recovery, and how tragedy has only made us (the running community) stronger. We said a lot of prayers for Boston last year - but let's not forget them this year. I can't wait to watch the race coverage - any big event like this is always a huge motivator for me!
how about you?
