Boston. I love that city.
I got chills when I took this picture of the marathon finish line in Boston last fall.
Yesterday, a sorority sister of mine was running the Boston Marathon. About halfway through the day, I remembered her sister had posted her bib number to track her during the race. Curious, I went the marathon website and typed in her number, only to find she was doing fantastic! At the time I was tracking her (around 2:15 pm), she only had 5 miles left of the race and I knew she was going to break 4 hours (unreal). I was so pumped for her when she crossed the finish line at 2:43 pm in 3 hours and 58 minutes. YOU GO SAM!
And then I was g-chatting with my sister when she told me there had been an explosion at the finish line, at approximately 2:45 pm.
My heart breaks for everyone involved in this tragedy, on what should have been a huge accomplishment for so many people. It makes me angry.
I will be praying for Boston, and its people.
