Runners Unite!

All over social media in the past 30 or so hours, lots of people are sharing ways to support and pay tribute to all those in Boston--the runners, the spectators, the residents...anyone affected by the tragedies.  The two most popular ways were to wear a race shirt today in support of runners everywhere, and to run today in honor of those who no longer can.

There were many distances that runners pledged to run today--the most popular being 4.09 miles or km in honor of the time on the clock when the explosions happened.  Some chose to run 2.62 miles to symbolize  the length of the marathon.  My running friend and I dedicated our run for this evening to Boston.

I took to Twitter this morning and asked people to Tweet me their pictures of support!  I was amazed by the response we got.  The rest of the page is filled with pictures friends have sent me.  Fellow runners--you are amazing!  The support everyone is showing to Boston proves that there is so much more good in this world than evil.  Thank you so much for sending these in!  I will leave you with a quote.  "We all may be perfect stranger...But we run, therefore we are friends."

A dream is a wish...
