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.

When I finished my collegiate cross-country and track career, I felt burned out and unmotivated to continue running. As a result, I quit running for over 2 years and, as expected, lost a lot of conditioning during that time. I was out of shape. Eventually, when I decided to start running again, I needed a coach and motivation. Enter the guys from RunningLane.com. My coach Will lit the fire in me to get fast again! In a little over 2 years time, he took me from a high school level fitness to beating my college PRs in the 5k and 10k and even running well in longer races like 15k and 10 miles. With his guidance, I now have a realistic chance of qualifying for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials!

I firmly believe that this team at RunningLane.com can do the same for you - whether your goal is to take down old PRs, win your age group at a local 5k, or be competitive on a national level.  They’re the best.
