Running for Boston

Yesterday's news breaks my heart. I was so excited about my finish in my 10k, riding along the excitement wave and then boom, crash, to the floor went my heart as facebook exploded quickly of the news. Not really news so much as horror and tragedy.

As quickly as I imagine the bombs exploded, the running community responded with sentiments and ways for each of to honor those affected by the blasts. By the time I went to bed I had chosen a few to participate in. First, to complete 4.09 miles today in honor of the time the race was shutdown. This was ambitious considering I was going to be wearing my new shoes for the first time today. I didn't really care though. It wasn't the easiest mileage ever, but at the same point it was. I felt like I had to push through and do it... for them.


and that I did. I ran and ran. I also joined these: event #1 (to run any distance dedicated and honoring those at the marathon) and event #2 (to run a total of 26.2 miles in the next two weeks).

How are you honoring Boston?
