Boston- A Lonely Runners Experience

I did not run Boston, but even with all that is going on I would still run Boston given the chance. I am really at a loss for words and am filled more with sadness, not only for the people killed, injured, or affected in ayway by this tragic event, but also for the state of our world. I just don't understand the pure evil and hatred that fills people. How can anyone plan and commit such a monterous act?  I am reposting this from the blog, Travel, Fitness, and Love (with permission) to show that there are still good people out there. It is one runners account of that day...

A Lonely Runners Experience

ImageRunning a marathon in a big city you've never been to is never an easy task, going alone is even harder.  Last year I qualified for Boston for the first time at the New Orleans Rock n' Roll Marathon.  It wasn't until November that I decided I should sign up for Boston when I knew that this might be my only chance to run a marathoners dream run before I moved back overseas with my Fiance where the military would inevitably keep me far away from the east coast.
