A Sad Day For All Runners and A Nation

Post by Dave Tuttle on Mon Apr 15, 2013 8:13 pm

What a horrible thing today in Boston... Who will ever be able to run a major race again and not worry? Our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families.

I am actually surprised it has not happened before during a large sporting event.
The death toll does not need to be the magnitude of 911 in order to have the same effect that terrorists thrive on.

Such a sad time for all.

It was scary for me for a while. My daughter was there and on a 4:05 pace. Not knowing is not good. She was very lucky, just about 1/4 mile from the finish. She missed her scheduled wave start and started the next one giving putting her back.

Wow, that had to be scary Mel! Glad it turned out OK.

A close friend was doing her final marathon there. She was within a half mile of the finish when the course was closed. Her boyfriend was waiting between the two explosions (on opposite side of road) and helped pull down the barriers and assist with shrapnel wounds until the medical units got there.

I wore my BAA tees and jacket all week in honor of the deceased and injured. The race director of our local marathon said entries have soared as a result of this tragedy, as many new runners want to show the world that they are not going to be intimidated by such heinous actions.
