Honoring Boston & feelin' the runner love

Yup, I rocked a race shirt to work yesterday. Through social media the word spread to all runners to sport a race shirt the day after the tragedy at the Boston Marathon...I just could not resist.

It was really awesome to not only be part of a movement who knows how big, but also to share my love for running with my co-workers and be an example of just how committed and supportive the running community at large is...

Though I am very new to running, though I have not [yet] run a marathon or any major, large, or televised race, though I have SO much to learn and grow in this new hobby/lifestyle/sport...what happened in Boston hit me hard. 

The day after the Boston tragedy, I ran with my track buddies. I didn't do the workout, just race a few miles at an easy pace around the track, testing out new shoes and PRAYING knee pain would stay away, and watching everyone speed on by. Watching everyone, these speed monsters, lap me time and time again, it made me happy. I felt a sense of joy to see people running, happy in their pain from the workout, feeling satisfied at the end, being thankful for another day of doing something they really love. I don't think I have ever enjoyed being lapped this much (and I get lapped all the time!). 

I am heart-broken for all those impacted by what happened on 4/15, but so thankful to be part of a community so strong and united during such tough times. 

So happy running found me.

  1. For all the hand-wringing over the lack of christian louboutin uk movement at louboutin outlet running back earlier this offseason, the Eagles remained patient both in free agency and the draft and added two pieces without overspending at a position that continues to decrease in value gmae jerseys in the pass-happy NFL. Despite a narrative christian louboutin shoes about a renaissance at nfl jerseys running back, teams are still reluctant to invest in a position elited jerseys where the players jerseys store have a shorter wholesale nfl jerseys life span cheap nfl jerseys and a lessening impact - christian louboutin Panettone spiked leather wallet at least individually - on the game. The Eagles, christian louboutin men flat who have limited jerseys their future invested in quarterback Carson Wentz, followed that Christian Louboutin Women Flat formula.
