When I first heard about this tragedy I wasn’t as affected as I became after finally hearing it on the news. I’m a runner, and this summer I’ll be participating in my first “Fun Run”; 5K Color Me Rad, and although I know nobody affected I just couldn’t help but feel like one of “what if that was me” moments. I want to participate in events like these one day, and hearing this literally scares the crap out of me.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the affected families, runners, cheer teams of the participants of the Boston Marathon. May we all find peace the day that the person(s) are found and justice be served.
