For the past 10 years Boston has been my home and with it so has the Marathon, whether it was drinking by BU, cheering from my office in Back Bay or running it for the past two years. I love Boston and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
I will post a recap of the race, that will focus on the race and not the tragedy that unfolded afterwards. I know that running is very insignificant in retrospect of what happened but I do believe that resuming life, and celebrating the achievements of that day is one of the best ways to fight back. I don’t know who or why or what cause someone to do this, but they will not stop me from running or loving my city and way of life. I’ll be running Salt Lake City marathon this weekend and Boston’s Run to Remember next month and most importantly, I will be back in 2014 to run the Boston Marathon.
Thank you all for reaching out and having me in your thoughts. I am so incredibly lucky for everything. Thankfully, everyone who was waiting for me at the finish line was a few blocks off including myself. My thoughts are with the injured and their families.
