I wasn't sure if I was going to do a post about what happened in Boston. I still have not really wrapped my head around it. I was watching the elite runners in the morning on the live feed and a few hours later when I went online to look up some people I know in real life and in the blogging world and see how they did when I saw something completely different. I was in shock as was everyone else. I headed over to Facebook to check on people and everyone I know was OK. I can't say that for other facebook/blogging friends and my heart is breaking for them. My phone started going crazy not too long after that with people checking on me which is so sweet but I will never qualify for Boston and *if* by some strange turn of events I was running a marathon ANY marathon you would for sure know about it because I would not let you forget it!!
I will say the one thing that did change for the better is that ever since I started running in 2011 I have never really thought of myself as a runner. Why? Maybe because I am slow, maybe because I do not have the drive to train for a full marathon. Maybe because I don't really love to run. I love how I feel when I am done and I love the friends I have made along the way and I love that I push through and have accomplished things I never would have thought I could. But now I am proud to say I am a runner.
