I am not going to go into how I feel about Boston because I am still trying to wrap my brain around it. How, what and sonofabitch are the only thoughts that bop around in my head. But I will say that I am extremely grateful that all my friends who were running and spectating on Monday are okay. They are my 2nd family and the thought of them being hurt or worse makes me want to vomit all over my keyboard.
My next marathon is the Marine Corp in October. As I go along, I will be sure to thank everyone (volunteers and spectators) for being out there and not being afraid.
