      When we run Boston, we always thank those Marines hiking the course with their rucksacks.  This reminds me why.  Those guys rock.  http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/04/tough-ruck-soliders-arredondo-boston-marathon

        An arrest.  Never mind.

        Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul.

            Thanks, folks. The family of running is very large this morning.

             

            ---  So I have added 4 pounds, why do you have to go and point that out??  Disapprove

                A Bomb is the Opposite of a Marathon

                 

                Thank you Jeff. As I was running today my thoughts went to the victims and to their loved ones. And then I realized that to me the essence of running is celebrating life. And how in the end life is always the strongest. As the world will witness at the 118th Boston Marathon and beyond. Bombs can destroy lives, but not life itself. That too is endurance.

                  To clarify, you're talking about the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996 with this post, and not relating to the "arrest" (or not) from this afternoon.

                  If 1996, yes, your statement is fair.  Patience is key right now for "us".
