So, I've always been one of those gals that said "I am not a runner". I have slowly worked my way up to running a 5k, but I've had no desire or a good reason to go any further.
Until last Monday.
I watched the Boston Marathon on TV and then saw the horrible tragedy unfold. My heart broke into a million pieces. And then...I got angry. I was angry at those who have no respect for life. Cowards who attack the innocent from dark corners and then slink away.
So, it is for the innocent victims that I find a reason to begin my training. Those fighting for their lives in Boston hospitals, those mourning the loss of loved ones and those having to start their lives again.
I am not a runner. But I will run a marathon. I will begin training in defiance of those who think they have power over us. I will run for Boston.
