I’ve lived right outside of Boston for my entire life, minus the four years I spent in NY for college. I grew up so close to the city that you could see the skyline from our house. Now, I live about 15 miles away. Thankfully, myself and my friends and family are all fine after yesterday, but it certainly could have gone a different way. Many of my coworkers took the day off to spectate and some to run.

I offer my condolences to anyone who was directly affected by what happened yesterday during the Boston Marathon bombings, and I hope that both the city of Boston as well as the running community (who I feel so close to, thanks to blogging) can recover from what happened yesterday.

After getting out of work last night, I watched the coverage on the news for most of the night. There was a lot of uncertainty even then as to whether there was more danger, and if that danger extended outside of the city. They issued a warning for people to stay inside.

Despite all of this, it is quite nice to see everyone coming together and supporting each other in such a difficult time.
