Prayers for Boston

I don’t have a lot of words for what happened yesterday, but I need to get some of what I am feeling out.

Boston is my home, I have been in awe of the marathoners since I was a kid. I have had the desire to run Boston since I was a teen. I have discovered the drive to run Boston in the past few years.

At 2:02 pm on Monday I received the following text from my trainer, who is my BQ inspiration

“Freakin awesome experience”

We’ve had multiple conversations about how Boston is my dream, whether I BQ or not it is something I HAVE to do.

Now my heart is breaking for Boston. My home. My running mecca.

What happened is senseless and terrifying. I am grateful for the first responders, volunteers and runners who rushed in to help and not out of the city. I am grateful that all my friends are safe and well.

So today is in honor of the victims, of anyone who had to witness this terrifying tragedy, and for the running community. We are resilient and we will make it through to the other side.
