Yesterday was hard. I think we are all feeling the heaviness of what happened at the Boston Marathon. BUT- reading all of your posts and comments on mine was really showed me how amazing people are and how amazing this community of runners is. My favorite quote that was all around social media yesterday:
I wore blue and yellow to work and the second I walked in the door to my apartment, I threw on my NYC Marathon shirt and laced up my Adidas Boston II’s. I hit the pavement for 2.62 silent miles in tribute to everyone effected by this horrible tragedy.
Feeling so grateful to be out there, and nodding to other runners I passed brought me a sense of peace I hadn’t felt since before I heard the terrible news. THIS IS WHY I RUN.
The rest of my runs this week will absolutely be dedicated to Boston. Now, on to What I Ate Wednesday hosted by the lovely Jenn at Peas and Crayons 🙂 . Keep in mind, this cold has thrown off my appetite a wee bit and I totally failed on taking snack pictures yesterday.
Snacks: cheese & crackers, peanuts, apple, popsicle
- sunday – sick = rest

Tell me why you run!!!
