I joined the "Run 26.2 for Boston" on Facebook.
I have to say that I am not one to jump on every band wagon that comes along, that stuff drives me crazy. However, as a runner and human being that was deeply saddened by what happened on Monday, I felt obligated. Because I still can.
I went out to run the first miles of my 26.2 miles for Boston this morning and it is a cloudy dreary day. I guess that fits the mood. I began thinking about what happened and how many people's lives are now drastically altered because of this senseless act. We will never understand what makes some people do such horrific things to other human beings.
Someone asked me if I still want to run a half-marathon. My response is that I am more determined now then ever to run a half this year. I hate when it takes such negative occurrences to bring people together, it shouldn't be this way. But I guess that is part of human nature and at least we can come together.
Anyway, as I started my run it began to drizzle and I thought of "Tears from Heaven".
Heaven weeps above the Earth......
What are we doing to ourselves?
I beg you, Please go out today and do something positive to make a difference and counter act this terrible act of violence. Even if the best you can do is smile at a stranger, do it today.
to you all.
