Every blogger/runner has something to say about Boston's sad events from yesterday :( none of it will be new or original but we are all feeling something about it. Mostly sadness and outrage that they picked on runners and more likely, family members at something as non-political, non-religious as a marathon.
What I cannot figure out is, what statement are they trying to make? They were not trying to "get" someone famous, weren't trying to take out a leader, a radical. They aimed at back-of-the-pack runners and families waiting for them. Runners like me. Slow but out there doing it because we love it. Families supporting. Children. there was nothing to be gained by this.
But either way it's never going to be the same again. Something has been taken from us again.
