I am deeply saddened by the events that transpired today in Boston. My heart goes out to all the people affected by this tragic and truly senseless act of violence.
Although I don’t know anyone running the marathon, this hit close to home. I feel like I am part of such a community of other healthy living bloggers, and many of them are runners. Just last night I was reading about a woman who had run in several Boston marathons. This could have been any one of us. We should all count our blessings for our good health. It especially pains me that some of the fittest people in the world are affected. Can you even imagine putting all the work into training for a marathon, and then losing your legs? This is a truly horrific tragedy.
I am running a half marathon this summer, and I want to dedicate it to all the victims of the Boston bombings, as well as those whose loved ones were effected, or who had to witness this. I am doing it for Boston.
