I’m still trying to make sense of this tragedy at The 2013 Boston Marathon, where the only pain we usually talk about is what our legs feel at Heartbreak Hill. My heart goes out to all those people injured and their families, and the families of those who were killed. Boston is an amazing city with people who line the streets for 26.2 miles to cheer on thousands of marathoners and offer support. Kids hand out water and popsicles and put out their hands for high-fives. Adults offer beer. Wellsley girls offer kisses and more. 😉 It is an event that’s unparalleled in every way. I know that runners will be offering their support by returning to the race.
I ran 3:44 flat to requalify. I will be back in 2014. I’ll be posting a race report soon.
