I really don’t know what to say about what happened in Boston today.
The people I know personally who are there are all ok, and of course I’m thankful for that, but that’s really not the point. There are a whole bunch of other people who are not ok, and that makes me very, very sad.
Even if what to say is not among them, there are a few things I know:
-Runners are the best lot out there. I don’t know what my point is, really. Just that runners are, by and large, above-average human beings.
-I found out about what happened the minute before I went out for a run with my students. Yes, I will still encourage every last one of them to keep running.
-I will keep running.
