Beyond Words

At the Barcelona Marathon. As a fellow runner, as a human, my thoughts go out to those affected by the Boston Marathon blasts.

I’m sporting my Barcelona marathon tee in support of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings and the running community in general.

I watched the tragedy unfold yesterday and was absolutely speechless, horrified, and angry.

Who would do this? Why? And why are they so cowardly, they haven’t come forward to claim responsibility yet? What did they hope to gain if it wasn’t credit for the attacks?

Don’t they realize that runners will not be terrorized. If I’ve learned anything in my year training for my first marathon, it’s that RUNNERS’ SPIRITS WILL NOT BE BROKEN.

We run to defeat all odds and expectations. We run to stay free. We run.

For those who died or lost limbs, my thoughts are with you. This is such a terrible tragedy. You have the support of the running community. An international community of people who will not give up.
