Devastated ...

... my heart is bleeding, aching for Boston.

I used to run ... well, more like slog. As in slow jog.
But I've gone as much as 19 miles in a training run.
I had dreams of marathon
and I've done a number of 1/2 marathons.
I belonged to a couple of internet running groups ....
Dead Runners Society
where I became acquainted with the Penguins
and embraced them.

Some of the people with whom I've shared the road
have run Boston.
It's a big deal for the average runner to qualify.
It was never on my horizon,
but I loved reading the posts of my fellows
who were getting ready for the Big One.

I wish I stayed in touch.
I hope that those I have personally met
and shared water, beer and sweat ...
I hope they were no where near Boston today.

Boston, you are in my heart and prayers on this day.
And you are the reason for the tears that won't stop.

I so hear you. My heart breaks for all of those innocent people.

A horrible thing to have happen, and yet....

So many people in the Boston area have posted their names, addresses, even phone numbers online in order to offer complete strangers food and shelter. Many more people than those who committed this awful offence against innocents.

I definitely do not downplay the bad but the good IS greater and WILL overcome.
