‘If you are losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon’

If you haven’t read this article please do, and please allow yourself to cry:

Honestly as I started to read that article I got really sad expecting a somewhat unhappy and negative ending, but it took a different turn. The resilience, camaraderie and faith of the running community never ceases to inspire me. 

One of the best and worst parts of being a runner is being able to tap into the hearts and emotions of every runner out there. When we see fellow runners get injured, we feel their PAIN; when we see a runner cross a finish line, we feel their JOY… and when we witness tragic chaos amidst one of our treasured, coveted events,  we come together as a team, as a community, as a family.

My heart goes out to all the runners who ran the Boston Marathon Today, to all the runners who watched the joys and pitfalls and to every runner is the world who has a deep pain in their heart tonight. 

Together we fall, but together we rise.
