Running For Boston
I have been quiet on the Blog over the past week.
The long and short is that I was shocked by the bombing in Boston and couldn't find the right tone for any post... I started a couple times and just didn't really know how to capture what I wanted to say.
Well, a week has past and our nations fine law enforcement officers have gotten the 2 suspects and I figured it was time to comment. (briefly)
The fact that the bombing targeted a running event is terrible...but no more so than it would have been if it had targeted a concert or bus or whatever. With that said, I have found that I think about this every time when I am out running. I want to honor that city and race over my next few runs(at least)
With that in mind, I am kicking around the idea of putting this custom version of my logo on a tech shirt and running in it for a while. It is a simple way to sorta represent Boston. It is also what I fully expect to be thinking about when I run the Frederick Half in a week and a half.
By the way, the Frederick Half Marathon Organizers have asked all of the runners to wear either yellow or blue laces as a show of solidarity for the City of Boston. A classy move, in my opinion.
My wife is a devotee of the Saucony Kinvara 3. Well, Saucony released a Boston Marathon Special Edition of the brand new Kinvara 4 in honor of that event (prior to the race and bombing).
We had them delivered this week so she will be representing while wearing these.
So, with this post complete... I am going to work on my long- overdue Cherry Blossom 10 Miler recap.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think of the logo and/or shoes.
