Such a sad day…

I have been struggling with what to say at a time like this.  All I know is that I am praying for the victims and their families and for everybody else that was affected by this tragedy.  Running the Boston Marathon is any runners dream come true…and the families and friends that come out to support the runners and the countless volunteers and medical staff that help out are all part of making that dream come true.  In a few seconds this day, which is usually full of accomplishment and joy, turned into panic, fear, and tragedy.  I just can’t even imagine what it must have been like to be there…my thoughts are with Boston.

To show support for the victims and their families, I participated in Race Shirt Tuesday and wore my 10k shirt from this past weekend.

While still in shock watching the coverage yesterday, I looked down and saw Annabelle just smiling away.  My first thought was, “how could she be laughing at a time like this?”  But then of course I realized that at only 3 months old she knows nothing about hate or evil in this world and she is truly innocent…really amazing when you think about.

I’m definitely counting my blessings tonight.
