Boston Marathon 2014

{Back Blog} - Marathon Monday - April 20, 2014

I've lived in Boston since 2004 and have attended all Marathons except 2013. I was working in my corporate job and did not have the day off and reluctantly decided to not take a vacation day. Call it fate. Living in Brookline at the time, my husband and I were part of the house arrest that took place as they searched for the men who bombed our city. I really don't have words to express how impacted we felt, how scared we were, and how much we prayed for the families affected. We were all affected.

In 2014, I knew I would attend the Marathon. I was full of tears, with my dear friend Lizzie, for the day meant so much to us. I also was full of pride for our city, and for the runners.

I won't miss another Boston Marathon again and I'd encourage everyone to attend at least once in their lifetime. It's really something spectacular.
