7:00 AM: Tracy Anderson’s Workout – COMPLETED
12:15 PM: 4.15-Miles for 4/15 Boston Victims – COMPLETED
I’m still shook up by the events that took place yesterday. I know we all are and I hope that whoever did this will pay. After hours of trying to reach my OB/GYN, I received word that she was okay. She was there when the explosion hit and her car was pretty much out of her reach so was stuck in Boston. I was happy to hear from her, but still, I felt uneasy about her safety. I’m still waiting for her to arrive safe back to NJ.
This event made me think back to a month ago when I ran Shamrock Marathon. The only thing I could think of was how Lili and P were at the finish line waiting for me.
Last night, I told P that I don’t know if I ever want him and Lili at the finish line of any of my future races. He told me that it’s exactly what “they” want — for us to live in fear and that we can’t allow them to take that from us — and that he will continue to be at the finish line with Lili and Baby #2.
Today, I met up with Kristina and we wore past race shirts in honor of the Boston victims. We had no type of goal for today’s run but to just run freely. It just turned out that we finished at 4.15 — the same date as the Boston Marathon.
I hope you all are safe and that if you had friends and/or family out there, that they are safe too. It’s a scary world out there.
