Last evening's Runners Unite for Boston event was moving, which I really did not mean as a pun. That hundreds and hundreds of people showed up for an event that had been publicized only for 48 hours is pretty amazing. People were so touched by the events of the Boston Marathon they wanted to do something, something. My nephew and I sure wanted to. So we ran. Some runners were sad. Some defiant. Some determined that running events will not change. We saw firefighters running in full gear. We saw more than one person running with a heavy American flag. We saw babies in jogging strollers and an old man running with a cane.
We are in this picture below, although I haven't actually found us yet:
We were proud to participate.
