I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who ran 4.09 miles this week for Boston. I got so many tweets, Facebook comments, and blog comments saying you ran, you prayed, you wished you could do more and I am so proud of each and every one of you.
My 4.09 miles was less than stellar, but I did it. I was dehydrated, hadn’t eaten enough, and it was 85 degrees outside with super high humidity. I was miserable, and grumpy. I finally realized, this run isn’t for ME, this run is for those who can’t. For those laying in hospital beds, or those who can never run again. It was an eye opener for me and just the smack I needed to set myself and my pains/frustrations aside and focus on someone else and their needs. I ran and I prayed. I prayed for the victims and their families. For the medical and rescue personnel. For everyone who witnessed the horrifying scene of that day, and for our country as a whole. I prayed for the evil in the world to be brought to justice, and for love to be shown among neighbors and fellow Americans. Now is not the time to fall apart, but the time to come together as one and fight. It wasn’t my fastest or prettiest run, but it had the most heart.
So again, a huge thanks to those that ran, walked, biked, or wore a race shirt sometime this week. You are all awesome, and I am sure the people of Boston appreciate you. <3
So many horrible things have been happening….we also need to pray for those in West Texas and what they are going through.
