Pray for Boston

As I make my final preparations for the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday the events of yesterday's Boston Marathon weigh heavy on my heart. Please keep everyone affected by yesterday's tragic events in your thoughts and prayers. My friend, Sarah, who I ran the Great Wall of China Marathon with was there cheering on her BFF, Laurie. They, along with Laurie's family, are okay but it definitely makes things hit a little closer to home. Not only did these events affect the running community that I am proud to call myself a part of but having someone you know in the vicinity of the events really hits hard.
I watched an interview today with the runner, Billy Iffrig, pictured here. The police helped him up and made sure he crossed the finish line. He is 78 years old and finished 2nd in his age group.
