The race course in Boston is a beautiful place to run with historical sights and traditional perks like running through the Wellesley College Scream Tunnel. With fans stacked up 6 people deep from the start to the finish, I realized that what makes Boston so unique are the spectators.
Within a short time of finishing the race we watched as everything fell apart. I still remember standing only a block away watching emergency vehicles race past and wondering what had just happened. Then being taken in by some of the locals.. watching it on TV... feeling numb.
Without a doubt, I know that my Heavenly Father kept me out of harms way. I am grateful that I was able to return to my boys unharmed. I am grateful the Boston Marathon will continue. What an inspiration it is to see those who were affected prevail. Boston is filled with a great people who love their tradition. Boston will Stay Strong!
