We had 3 runners from my small rural area who I read in the paper are okay. Today I read a story in the local paper about a native of this area who lives a couple of hours from here now but has a lot of family here and was born and raised here. She said she got dehydrated and stopped at one of the medical tents and was there about 15 minutes. She wanted to finish though. When she went back out again she was running a little slower. She was a couple of miles from the finish line when it happened. She said if she hadn't had to stop and had stayed on her pace she would have most likely been at the finish line when it happened. So many stories of how people just missed being there for one reason or another.

Got word back from the last of my running community last night around 10PM - cellular communication was disrupted for a time in the Boston area.

Yes, it really affects everyone. Two of the runners who I know are ok; I know of a third person who was supposed to run Boston but I don't know if he did. I read about the 8-year-old boy. So sad. His dad usually runs but apparently didn't this year because he has an injury - at least that's what I read. Keeping all of the people in my prayers.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

Even though I'm several states away my heart is breaking for everyone that was there and for everyone effected by it in other ways, like me, who weren't actually there but the acts that happened touch our lives and our hearts. So tragic and senseless. I read that the 8 year old boy who was killed had a 6 year old sister there also who lost a leg. She had just run a kids race there the day before and was so proud of the award she had for taking part in it. Their mom has a brain injury. And so many others injured, 2 others dead, and so much pain and heartache for absolutely no good reason. Sending thoughts and prayers for them.
