yet another boston post

well. i don't really have much to say that hasn't been said. it was a cruel, heartless and horrific thing that happened on monday. i can't even put it into words what went though my mind when i saw those first few tweets come across my twitter feed (i was traveling for work and we saw the news via my twitter feed late in the afternoon).

via firefly yoga studio's facebook

i wore a race shirt on tuesday on my trip back home from dallas (because i apparently always have race shirts with me...even when 5 hours from home). and yet another race shirt to yoga that night. i ran a few quiet, introspective couple of runs this week. i wanted to spring into action, but didn't know how. donate blood? money?

i went about planning my long run this weekend, a preview group run of the half marathon course that i'll be running in two and a half weeks, and i saw this come across my facebook newsfeed:

technically, it wasn't this post, it was another one, but the 1 mile run/walk was announced this morning.
if you are a wichita or surrounding area resident, the preview run starts tomorrow in front of the hyatt downtown at 7 am and follows the prairie fire spring half course. the 1 mile run/walk will start at 8 am. wear your blue and yellow in honor of boston and, if you can, donate to the one fund.  

i think president obama said it best yesterday at a memorial service in boston:
“that’s why a bomb can’t beat us. that’s why we don’t hunker down. that’s why we don’t cower in fear,” he said at the peak of his speech, during an interfaith service at the cathedral of the holy cross. “we carry on. we race. we strive. we build, and we work, and we love.”
