Yesterday’s tragic events at the 117th Boston Marathon have my heart hurting. I am deeply saddened and very angry at the individuals who did this. This only makes me want to kick serious butt at the Illinois Marathon and then train my heart out for a Boston Qualifier. May we all find some inspiration in this horrible tragedy.
Last night, after processing a lot of the news, I realized how amazing the running community really is…it inspired me to write a poem (which I haven’t done in a long time) and want to share with you. It’s not Pulitzer-worthy, but I’m sure a lot of you will know exactly what I mean.
Run a few minutes or miles for Boston today. Run for the people who couldn’t finish. Run for the community. Run for YOU. Because YOU are worth it.
