When the explosions turned a dream into a tragedy in Boston yesterday I was running with my daughter's running group. I came home to the shocking news of loss and terror at the finish line of our nation's greatest race.
This latest incident hit close to home. A quick perusal of Facebook reassured me that those near and dear to me were out of harm's way. As a runner and marathoner, I know how tightly knit this community is, and I am shocked and saddened that some individual or individuals chose to steal the joy from so many. When I race this weekend, Boston will be foremost in my heart and mind.
