The 117th Boston Marathon (Read 841 times)

    Simply speechless on this one.  Hoping that all my running buddies and their families in Boston are all right....

    The Plan (big parts)→  ///  March:  Shamrock Marathon  ///  April:  24 Hour Run for Cancer  ///   May:  3 Days at the Fair (12 Hour)  ///  Nov:  New York Marathon ∞

      My wife and I are here.  She was standing right were the first explosion was 2 hours earlier.  We are both fine.  This sucks

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

        I am in total shock. My heart and prayers are with everyone in Boston.

        2013 Goals

         

        Complete my first marathon - Scotiabank Marathon Oct. 20 2013 - Target time 4:00

        2013-Run 1500 miles

         

         

          Pure insanity - what the hell is wrong with people. Thoughts and prayers with those who were injured/killed and their families.

          2014 goals:

          1. Run a minimum of 1.5 miles every single day of the year

          2. Run 1500 miles in 2014

          3. Get my weekly mileage above 40

          4. Brown belt in Shaolin Kempo

          5. First Half (Oregon Wine Country HM?)

          6. PRs: Sub-21 5k, Sub-45 10k, Sub-45 Spartan Sprint, Sub 1:55 HM (Oregon Wine Country HM)

            Heartbreaking, can't believe someone would do something like this

              This makes me sick. My prayers go out to all the people injured and their families.

                Am I doing this right?

                  Stupid people really piss me off. Praying for all those in and around Boston. Please be safe.

                  No excuses....

                    This sucks!  What kind of person would do that?

                      I know a few and feel connected to all.  My heart is breaking for those in Boston today.

                        This is terrible.  Praying for all those involved even those that had already finished and not directly impacted by the blast.  I can only imagine the thoughts of those that finished before and after and how they will likely think about this at every finishline for the rest of their lives.  Sad to see our world in this light.

                          There was a third explosion at the JFK library.

                           

                          MTA:  According to the police commissioner.

                          How can we know our limits if we don't test them?

                            I'm listening to the live police radio broadcast. Here is the link if anyone is interested.

                            I was going to say some of the things they're discussing, but I don't want to fuel anything that isn't confirmed. So sad and scary.

                              It will be a while until the news all shakes out.

                              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                                Wouldn't the police commissioner know?
