Boston marathon thoughts

It’s on every runner’s mind, and lots of other people’s too. After the initial shock you start to wonder why – why attack an event that unites so many different people? why attack people who have worked hard at bettering themselves (runners account for some of the nicest people I know)? why attack their families and friends who have come out to support them in this achievement? why attack others who have no connection to this race other than wanting to just cheer people on to the finish?

One thing this has done for me is to make my desire to run the Boston Marathon stronger. I thought maybe one day I could get fast enough to qualify – I know, I haven’t even run my first marathon yet, but I’m determined now to try and make sure that happens sooner rather than later.

      I somehow doubt I’d make it for next year (would have to have a pretty amazing first marathon – but I will try). If not, I will definitely make the effort to be there cheering others on.
