Tragedy in Boston Marathon

As a runner I am saddened beyond speech by what happened at the Boston Marathon yesterday, April 15th, 2013.  I still felt that I should write something.  I want to write about the tremendous support and rescue efforts that were witnessed yesterday.  First responders running in to help the wounded, and running in again and again to help people get to the waiting ambulances or at least to the medical tent which is there for the runners. 

No matter how scared we are, we must go on and live our lives and not let this type of "terror" stop us.  We must continue to run, walk, and keep moving forward.  Friends are organizing a silent run tonight and I am planning on attending just to show solidarity for the people in Boston who were injured in the attack.  Though they may not be aware of what others are doing now, in time we will hopefully make a difference in someone's life and help in the healing.

Stay strong, and keep your loved ones close.  Much love and support to everyone who was affected by this terrible tragedy.
