I am basically doing a blog today for points because well I am really close to getting to the next level...but it seems like a good time to contemplate events that happened yesterday!!

What a tragedy this is. And I'm sure all those that were there and are safe are really grateful for that fact. But it does make me sad for them in other ways. I have never ran a marathon although I did walk one. And the training it took to get to the point that I could do that was time consuming, difficult and rewarding at the same time. I remember each week being astounded when I walked 15 miles, then 18 then 20 and then finally the day I walked 26.2 miles. Crossing over the finish line with such pride and joy that I had completed it. It makes me sad for all those at the marathon that they did not get to have that. I know maybe that sounds silly in the wake of the deaths and I know in the scheme of things maybe it is. But it has to be disappointing at the same time.

I am more then saddened by the events of yesterday for more then one reason. I am sorry for all the heartache this event has caused across the country. I am just sad I guess!

Anyway, saying prayers for all that were effected! And prayers for all of us as we go about our days today! You just never know what is in store! May you all have a blessed day!!

    Thank you for adding me as a friend, I added you back. I was looking over your photos, and lady you're hot. I wish you the best on your weight loss journey. Thank you so much for viewing my blogs and vblogs. Iím a pistol ĖI must admit, but you are too. I was upset about what happen in Boston. The news made me think about what small things we enjoy and how some nut or a group of nuts can take the goal of doing something or the enjoyment of doing out of someoneís life. I want to do a 5k, next year and Iím in Alabama, I think Iím safe here, but we are never safe from these cowards. Itís sad, but all we can do is remain in prayer and hope none of our spark friends loved ones suffer from those explosions. This is what kills me, and once I say this Iíll end this comment. Why donít they show their faces? I mean, youíre bold enough to hurt someone, but youíre not bold enough to carry the weight of your actions. Well, they will carry it for a life time if they have a heart, and pay for it on Judgment Day. I do believe in that. I mean, that just ticks me off. Be a "MAN" and stand forward and say. "Yeah I did it!" So we can punish them and get it over with.
That's a coward for you. Great way to earn some points, I wish you the best this week.

    It makes me so sad that runners by nature are just peaceful fun loving people and whoever it was that did this chose this peaceful venue to try to prove a very violent point. I am sadden for the loss of life and the people who were so badly hurt and a city and event that may be forever changed because of it.
