On the eve of the 2014 Boston Marathon, I’d like to wish all the PR Fitness runners who will be there, especially Coach Marie and her husband Rob, a safe and happy race. A live feed will be online at http://watchlive.baa.org starting at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time Monday, and you can bet I’ll be watching.
Much has been written and said in the past week about last year’s bombing, but none of the runners were dwelling on that. Everyone was fired up to go to Boston and run strong. Nobody is forgetting what happened, but in my experience, runners are among the most positive and forward-looking people I know, which is a big reason why I enjoy running with a group so much.
Rob passed along this link to a CNN article written by PR Fitness runner John Farah. In this short piece he powerfully describes his 2013 experience and why he felt he had to return for this year’s marathon. Please read it. It’s worth it, I promise.
