Finishing the Race...The Boston Marathon Bombing

And that’s what we need to do now. Get up off the couch. Go for a run. Or a stroll. Or a walk. Whatever. Think about the people in Boston who pushed themselves to the limit, or cheered on those who did, only to have a coward strike. We can’t let the bastards whose lives are failures terrify the rest of us, who want to and try to reach beyond ourselves.
The goal of a marathon, for most of us, isn’t winning, but completion. Pile up the miles. Finish the run for those that now can’t.

Joy of moment shattered by Boston Marathon blast
