I really, really hope it doesn’t snow in the morning.
Tomorrow is our local marathon/half/5K and bike tour. Sarah and I have been riding this for quite a few years now and except for the first year when we froze our toes off we have had decent weather. This year…..oy….not so sure; it was 32 this morning at my house. Add precipitation and wind chill to that and a ride would be tough.
But, this year especially, I want to ride. I need to participate.
My marathon running career ended a few years ago and now I run shorter distances and ride the longer ones. I’ve got to say….it’s much more fun to ride a marathon when you’re as slow a runner as me! But I don’t ride well in the cold and wet….Sarah and I were discussing this and she had the *brilliant* idea of switching to running the 5K. I knew there was a reason to send her to college!
Yesterday after work, in the hills above the city, I ran a few miles with Boston in my heart. Tomorrow we will do the same; offering sweat and effort and prayers for everyone affected by the horrific events of the last few days.
As I write this, the second suspect is in custody.
Run for Boston; run for all of us.
