    Words escape me, but my thoughts and prayers go out to all who are suffering from this senseless and shameless act of violence.

        This has come across my Facebook feed:

         

        <Race Shirt Tuesday> (copied) A movement is sweeping across social media - to show your support, wear a race shirt tomorrow. Let the world know, we stand with our runners, volunteers, medics, supporters, race directors and anyone else who is a part of our great support. While it will not change what happened today - we can rally together to heal.

          I just started thinking the same thing.  We have auditor's in.  I figure it will be a slacks, race T and button down kind of day.

            This one feels even more personal, since I'm a runner, and this was done to runners.

             

            The side note about one of the fatalities being an 8 year old child is incredibly sad, but while listening to a Boston radio station they mentioned how a large group of families from the Newtown Massacre was sitting near the finish line as an honorary thing. Just what they needed to be exposed to.

              Wear a medal or display a race bib at your work station instead.

                I'm wearing my Jerusalem Marathon t-shirt to work tomorrow. I can't be too fancy. I work with little kids.

                  My first HM was on September 11, 2011. The medal is shaped like a ribbon. I'll wear that one. Good idea, thanks.

                    I haven't posted here in ages (if I ever did). But I'm thanking God that my friends from RWOL are physically safe. I can't imagine the horror some of you witnessed, and I hope the psychic scars heal in time. ((((HUGS))))

                      I can't say anything new at this point, but you guys are my running brothers and sisters.  I'm glad everyone that was at Boston from our group is well, and I like the race shirt idea.  I'll be wearing one to work tomorrow night.

                       

                      Peace.  Like, for real.

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                        Maybe I'll wear my Boston jacket if I can find a way to make it work with biz casual.

                          I just want to puke.  I'm not sure if races are ever going to feel quite the same again.

                          My wildly inconsistent PRs:

                            I think today is the first time that I feel I am a runner. In the past year I have logged about 1000 miles. The miles didn't make me a runner, but being part of something bigger than myself does.

                             

                            You runners are awesome. I am so glad to be one.

                            Tomas, I felt the same way.

                             

                            I'm glad you are all safe!

                              I guess I'm somewhat of a rebel (or maybe just a Texan), but I will take a little less safety for a little more freedom any day.  To me, when we let them infringe on our freedoms and activities, they win!

                               

                              im thankful there weren't more deaths!

                               

                               

                              Oh I don't think they will get rid of them. I think people will think twice before going to a big race like this. I know I will. I think you may see them reduce entry numbers as well.

                               

                              just heard the police are saying they do not have anyone in custody.

                                I completely 2nd this. I've been praying since I heard. I can't imagine what it was like for those there and especially Hillary!

                                I am so very happy to hear from so many of you that you are okay.  Nevergiveup, thanks for all you did today for your fellow human.  I pray for comfort and healing for everyone who was touched.
