I was originally going to post something today about how this is the first year in almost 5 years since I’ve lived almost on the Boston Marathon route… it seems ridiculous now.
If you haven’t heard, please check out the news from the Boston Marathon:
2 explosions occurred near the finish line of the Boston Marathon around 4 hours and 9 minutes into the race. As of this minute, the Boston Police Department are reporting that 2 people have died and 28 are injured. Obviously that toll will continue to climb as the chaos is sorted.
Obviously, this is tragic. I’m saddened both for Bostonians and for the running community. My heart goes out to anyone who was in the area and was affected and their families. Additionally, my heart goes out to all of those people who had trained hard to make a dream come true and don’t get to finish after hours of running.
The few people I know to check on at the moment are safe.
My love and prayers to anyone (and their families) in that area!
