Brooke and I are wearing our race t-shirts. She has my NYC Marathon one and I have the NWM one on.
We went on a silent run this morning for the victims, families of the victims, medical staff, police and people of Boston.
The other runners on the trail were even more friendly than usual as we passed by.
My sunglasses helped to not let them see the tears that I had when I saw so many of them wearing Boston race shirts/jackets/hats.
My run brought me peace and hope. Like usual, running helped me to release some tension and to spend time to really think about things. Running really is the best therapy.
Brooke was still napping in the jogging stroller when I finished and so I sat by the lake for a while.
I hope that you were able to get in a run today and that you feel a little bit better.
As Caroline said in my previous post in the comments:
“Runners, we are strong and resilient. Let’s please stand together and not let cruelty overtake us.”
