Mournful Boston Marathon

6ea1c70ecb98e14c5ae179152c3fddd2Just got home from Boston late last night.  I will not be posting a race report given the tragic event surrounding the Boston Marathon.  My prayers and thoughts go out to the victims, families and those who were affected by this cowardice act.  It must have been horrifying for runners who were still on the course wondering about their families waiting for them at the finish.  Fortunately, my family and I were on our way back to the hotel and didn’t hear about it until I turned on the television.  I am thankful to God that he kept us all safe.

To lighten the mood a bit, I saw this on the Internet yesterday.

About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.

    I was at Boston as well and today marks 1 week after the senseless acts that happened that day. All of us should have been celebrating but was marred by the tragedy. My husband witnessed the 2nd bomb go off as it was in front our the hotel we were staying in. I witnessed the aftermath in the medical tent. Glad that all of us made it safely back home and are OK. But never forget everyone else that was heavily effected.

    • It certainly was a senseless act. Fortunately, I didn’t have to witness the traumatic scene, I’m sure it was a horrible experience. I’ll continue to pray for those effected, just so sad. Take care!
