For Boston

In remembrance of the terrible attack on the Boston Marathon 2013 I will tomorrow run my marathon wearing these two bracelets. One is yellow and one is blue, the colours of the Boston Athletic Association, and has the words 'brave' and strength' engraved on them.  After having fussed all winter about reaching my goal time in tomorrow's race I'm now running for the joy of running, sad that innocent people got killed and injured, but glad to be a part of something that brings people together.
I got these bracelets from a very dear friend some time ago, reminding me to stay brave and strong, and now it's time for all of us in the running community to do just that - stay brave, stay strong.
