        Just got back from the doc and just read the story online and watched the news video.  How awful!  Glad you are okay, Shirfan, and glad everyone else who checked in is okay too.

         

        There sure are a buncha crazies in our world!  Why would anyone target a running event?  Or anything, for that matter?

          Glad Hilary (Nevrgiveup) is ok too, and praying that her ability to help those in need will be useful.

                      My DH just told me no more, he wasn't comfortable at the St. Louis race and now this has confirmed his discomfort and fears. I kind of agree, I will keep training for the fall HMs but I don't plan on DH and my son coming with me. If I do go then I will be going alone, of course we don't know what is completely going on yet and nobody knows what they will do to prevent this from happening again but now even I am fearful....Sad I hope everybody that was hurt is okay, and I hope they figure out what happened soon.

                          I was in Wellesley but my brother was in Kenmore Square at the 40k mark clock. I had no clue any of this was going on when we left our area around 2:00, and my brother called me while we were eating. He heard the explosion, and was around a mile away. We put on the tv when we got home. The finish line clock was at 4:08 when it happened, and I know a few people who could have been finishing around then.

                            CNN just reported 2 confirmed dead and 22 injured.

                                I decided not to go, after all. Boston police reporting two dead. I could vomit.
