Boston Stronger 2014

April 19, 2014

You have read on this blog before about the strength and resilience of Running a Marathon.  The preparation and planning take dedication and time.

There are too many people who remember where they were and what they were doing on April 15, 2013. Tragically many lost family and friends that day, lives lost too soon or altered forever. Others (of us) were more fortunate to get a text or phone call saying, “We’re okay.”

Today we recognize 36,000 runners (up 9000 from 2013) and the city of Boston as they prepare for the 118th running of the Boston Marathon on Monday April 21. We will be watching Monday and waiting again, but this time the text will say, “We’re okay AND we finished.”

Good luck to our friend who we are confident will finish the race this year and to all the runners who are proving that not only is Boston Strong, but Peace will always triumph. Go Mikey!

We salute a courageous teacher, Rachel Moo. Miss Moo was Martin Richard’s 2nd grade teacher and is running her first marathon this year in honor of Martin. “I know he’s going to be there with me,” she says. “Every step.”
