So relieved! Thank you everyone for following up - we had several people from our running clubs there and didn't get word on the last one until about 10:30 last night. Cellular communication was disrupted in the Boston area making a bad situation even more stressful.

My heart stopped for a second. I thought you were going to tell us that a Sparker was one of the three who were killed.

But as it happens, not even in Boston.

I was just on his FB page and he IS NOT in Boston! He tagged himself in his home city this morning and was excited to run again since the LA Marathon. He's safe and fine.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!
