This morning I was all a flutter to watch the Boston Marathon. I had never watched before, but just like anyone, I knew the Marathon was a big deal. This morning I realized that as a runner, this might be fun to watch! To be honest, I didn't realize it was televised until this morning and after searching for the station and finding it, I was GLUED to the tv! I settled in and my husband humored me as we watched from pre-race to finish. HOURS! I did my cross training right in front of the tv and was in awe and inspired. I loved every single second! I cheered on the elites, I studied their form and was amazed at their tenacity.
A mere couple hours later all those feelings of awe and inspiration were replaced by horror and sadness. I just cannot understand the world we live in sometimes. My thoughts and prayers are with those that were running today and family members. I really have no words. As a part of the running community I am outraged, disgusted, sad, and horrified at the events today. As a human, I'm just in disbelief. Why?
