On Marathons.

On Saturday, I ran 22 miles.

It's the longest training run I do, and I was out on that over-three-hour-long-run this weekend in preparation for a marathon which will be held in a few weeks.  The marathon is a small, local one, but involves the same amount of training as a big one.

Except for one.


Boston requires more, because first, you have to qualify.  I've run 13 marathons.  I've never qualified.  Realistically, I will not qualify in a few weeks.  I may never qualify, but if I do, you better believe I'll do whatever I can to be on that starting line one Monday in April.

My heart is absolutely broken.  People who trained, who cheered, who gave out medals, who held signs..... Bombed?

I don't have any great words.

This article struck a chord, though.

My prayers go out for Boston and for the running community as a whole.
Pin It!
