On Boston.

16 Apr

I wasn’t going to write anything on Boston here. What could I possibly say that hasn’t been said? What do you even begin to say when something like this happens?

But this morning at work, as everyone wanders around seemingly unaffected by yesterday’s events, I find myself just needing to talk about it.

I am still so shocked and saddened. I spent all morning long texting my best friend who was spectating from Wellesley. She sent videos of the elites going by, snapped a pic of a co-worker of mine, and we just generally got giddy with excitement over the marathon itself, the amazing athletes, and how great it will be to one day – hopefully – get there myself.

Then, I spent all afternoon frantically texting friends and co-workers. Both runners and non-runners. Terrified when someone didn’t immediately answer.

It was a roller coaster of emotion that I hope to never experience again.

For all of the runners, spectators, volunteers, medical staff, PD, first responders, anyone involved in planning for and executing the race: I love you.

For all of the Bostonians who are lucky enough to be a living, breathing part of my favorite city in the world: I love you.

For those who were personally affected by this tragedy: I love you and there will be better days ahead.

    I do completely agree about this. I am heartbroken, devastated and my heart goes out to not only runners but nonrunners as well and the entire community as a whole. Hope you are having a good day down there and your hip is doing well!
