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!!
