Because I Still Can’t Write the Words…

Since I’m still struggling with putting down on paper my Boston Marathon post, one that was supposed to be one of celebration, happiness, triumph, and an overall runners high, I will simply update with pictures from the weekend, Monday, and this week. For now, they will have to be worth a thousand words…

My heart is broken right now for my running community, for my city, for Monday’s marathoners, for the amazing family and friends who support runners every day and were there on Monday and are now scarred either physically or emotionally. Another post to follow, for now please keep Boston and all that were affected by Monday’s horrific events in your thoughts and prayers.
