Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

What happened in Boston was a tragedy. I am the absolute opposite of an emotional person so when I heard that there was an explosion from a coworker I didn’t really process what he was talking about. When I got home and hopped online I realized what was going on. I immediately reached out to all of my friends in Boston and after a brief panic of no response got a call from a friend in Cambridge letting me know that the cell service in Boston was terrible and while it was understandable to worry the delay in a response didn’t mean the worst. I am happy to report that all of my friends and people I know are safe and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Something that this event did shed light on is that I really do consider myself a runner now. I may not be a competitive runner but I am a runner. I wake up with the sun on the weekends and go run for a few hours and it is easily my favorite part of every weekend. It makes me sad that a race was the target of an attack but I know that as a community we will be okay. Even broader than the running community is the athletic community. I can guarantee that if something like this happened at the Crossfit games or ANY sporting event we would all feel it. It’s an attack on something we love. I believe that this event will only make us stronger and make us love a little harder. It is not so easy to steal the passion and fire from such a fierce community.

I am happy to call myself one of the pack and I am glad that I have a home with all of you.

To all of you who competed in this race your victories are still a victory and congratulations to your great accomplishment and for all of your hard work paying off.
