What a sad day...

Patriot’s Day...a day to remember, a day to celebrate, a day to run.  Today marks a sad day in running and American history.  I ask the question why to get no knowledge of the true reason.  Why would someone set bombs off in a town full of celebration?  Why bring tragedy to happiness?  We seem as Americans to be asking this question a lot lately with all of the nasty things that have been going on in our country.  I am sad and hurt, as an American, a teacher, and as a runner.  T o much has hit to close to home for me and I am not sure which way to look.

I am a runner I am a marathoner. I have spent my life around the sport starting at a young age and have been doing it all along.  I ran in high school, college and now after.  I have coached high school and now teach elementary kids about running.  I run in races, I run marathons.  I could never imagine running 26.2 miles, training months on end, dealing with injuries, to have such a joyous event end the way it did today.  What will now happen to this sport?  What can I come to expect in my next race?  I hope we, as runners will be able to grow from today’s events and learn whatever lesson we can.  May today only make us stronger, faster, smarter.  My heart and prayers are in Boston today.
