Can I start by just saying that the Boston Marathon on Monday was amazing??!!! I was so excited that Meb won! Go USA!!! And then all the stories I am hearing (like the one about the runners carrying the collapsed runner across the finish line) are just so inspiring! I just LOVE the running community!
You all know how much I love virtual races! I love running for a cause and most virtual races help raise money for a charity. When I saw this virtual race by Will Run For Bling I knew it was a must for me to do. This race called "We Stand With Boston" was raising money for The One Fund Boston (which helps the families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded during last year's Boston Marathon).
I already knew I would be running for Boston on Marathon Monday. How cool would it be to donate to The One Fund Boston AND earn some bling? Pretty awesome!
Luckily, I didn't have to run this one alone! Holly ran with me! We started the run nice and easy. We ran my normal 5K route from my house. We talked about the Boston Marathon that day and about our friend Dani who had run it. I was lucky enough to get to see Dani cross the finish line online!
Our run was a great one! We both ran hard and finished strong!
One thing that inspired me was how many people we saw running! We usually see a few people out running but that day there seemed to be more than the usual. I wondered if they were all running for Boston too (I think they were)!
Since we were running for Boston....we wore Boston colors too! :-) And I also had to show a picture of my Run For Boston Shubeez that I wear on my shoe.
This was a great virtual race! I loved running for Boston! And I can't wait to receive my bling! #BostonStrong
