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.

My coach, Brandon, has really motivated me to get into shape.  He gave me a simple walking plan and eventually I was jogging!  I was able to work into my busy schedule....and with two kids and working full-time, that is a hard thing to do.  Over time I’ve been able to go longer distances and I am looking forward to doing my first 5K this spring.  Thank You RunningLane!!!!
