Every year, runners like me stop and dream about running the Boston Marathon.
Then last year happened.
When those bombs went off last year, runners bonded together like never before. All across the country, different communities and clubs hosted races to help raise money for the victims, and to proclaim that the running family is as strong now as ever.
I’ve wanted to run Boston for a few years now, and while I’m still over an hour from qualifying, the dream is stronger now than ever.
So while I’m not running it this year, I’m there in spirit.
Run fast guys. Enjoy!
