A Word

It's Tuesday my sisters. And I feel that today begs a different commentary than my girlfriends may usually expect from me.

As I write this my heart is heavy. I try in vein to make sense of the events of Monday, April 15.

As  runner, I feel a special connection to those who were affected. Runners are a community and a family. A marathon commemorates the triumph of the human spirit. It is a demonstration of what we do as human beings when pushed to our limits. It is indeed the best in all of us.

Such an attack is a violation under any circumstances. The fact that it was done during a marathon tries to vilify what should be the ultimate celebration of the goodness in all of us.

As a person- my heart hurts for the victims and their families. We all have the right to feel safe in this world and to have that taken away from us- is the ultimate tragedy.

I'm not sure what to do with this unsettled feeling inside- with the hurt and the anger and the sadness of it all. I tried, in vein, to write some sort of statement about it all in the hopes that I would indeed find a place to put these feelings.

Unfortunately, I don't think that this blog is the place for me to heal. And so, my sisters, I will refrain from a classic post this week. Rest assured I'll return next week with the usual wit and wisdom. Instead- my sisters.... I'm going for a run. It may not be the right thing to do- but for today, it feels appropriate.


  1. It absolutely is the right thing to do, and a fitting tribute, as well as a healthy choice for a healing activity. Hope your run helps you to feel better.

  2. I was concerned you might be there. Glad to hear you are safe.
