For Boston

As I'm sure you have heard, the Boston Marathon was attacked yesterday.

Firstly let me say that Zach Koch and I are fine.  We traveled to the race together and despite recent injuries both ran well.  The relief of finishing and heading back to the hotel was quickly shattered by the news that someone had senselessly attacked the spectators near the finish line.

There is absolutely no excuse for this sort of ignorance and evil.  Being there, seeing the fear and confusion in the streets, makes me think of only one word to describe the situation - disgust.  

At RunningLane we are all saddened by the events and very disappointed that anyone would hurt a city and destroy families in the way we have seen.  But we are thankful that the situation was not worse.  We are proud of the runners and volunteers alike who rushed into harms way to help.

Furthermore, we are dedicated to helping the Boston Marathon carry on in it's incredible history.  The race will survive and the city of Boston will carry on because the SPIRIT of the marathon cannot be crushed in this way.  Anyone who has run Boston knows what I mean.

Prayers and support, from all of us at runninglane, For Boston.

If this time last year someone would have said to me, "By April 2016 you'll have run 3 5Ks and will be running 15 miles every week (and enjoying it!)," I'd have laughed and made a joke about being chased by a scary clown. But, here I am, just finished my 3rd 5K with a time a little bit better than the last.  I'm really glad RunningLane encourages beginners. As someone who has never run or even been very athletic, it's nice to have guidance and a place to get my questions answered. Big thanks to my coach, Michael for setting me up with a program that I can stick with and challenges me.  My program is just that…mine.  It is tailored to my fitness level and ability and having someone to check in with each week keeps me accountable. It’s working!  In 14 weeks with my coach and RunningLane my BMI has dropped 5 points, my cholesterol went from over 200 to 165, and my resting heart rate has lowered because my heart is healthier and happier!  Thank you, RunningLane!
