Remember how I confessed that I wasn’t a runner last week? Even though that’s still the case, I couldn’t help but get caught up with all of the excitement surrounding the Boston Marathon yesterday. A majority of the people I follow on Twitter are runners and some of them were there to run the most exciting race of their life. Some of them were there to witness this historical event in person. I wasn’t able to watch online but I felt like I was through all of the updates. And then such a senseless act – again. Why?
I may not be a runner, but I know you don’t just wake up one day and say, “I’m going to run a marathon today.” These people put everything they have into months and months of training in preparation for this event. Some of them (5,000 +) didn’t even get to feel that amazing sense of accomplishment you feel when you cross the finish line. Why?
An 8 year old boy lost his life right after hugging and congratulating his dad. Why? No one went into yesterday with a plan to be prepared for this. Children should feel safe going to school and cheering their parents on. Runners should feel safe running.
I have a feeling that the Boston Marathon will be bigger than ever next year. This won’t bring us down.
It seems silly to post my food but since I’ve been so consistent with it lately, I’m going to do it.
The usual with some kiwi thrown in the mix.
Leftover asparagus, roasted plantains and brussels w/ground pork.
And a Cutie.
Spaghetti squash and homemade meat sauce.
Thank you to everyone that took the time to take my survey. If you haven’t answered the questions, it’snot too late. I’ll talk more about that tomorrow.
I hope everyone you know is safe after yesterday’s events.
