Yep... all people who love to run & love running was excited about Marathon Monday.
I would have been more excited if my stupid computer was working. Our new work location has the shottiest internet speed so I couldn't get the live stream. I could pause it for about 15 minutes to only see about 45 seconds of footage.
But thank goodness for Twitter that was constant on updates.
I still felt the excitement.
& today, I'm already loving reading on recaps of runners & their experience running the race. The things they saw. The pictures they took. The way they felt.
I saw none of the things with my own eyes.
I didn't cross a finish line.
But I still get so choked up reading everyone's recaps of it.
I usually get choked up on most recaps - especially if it's a first time marathoner / half marathoner / runner doing ANY race....
But these Boston recaps just do me in.
On the news, the video of the young lady who ran with one leg when she lost the other in the bombing... the way she collapsed at the finish line. Yep - I sat watching it over my dinner & instantly burst into tears.
Something about the power of running... the connection with runners.
It's something pretty amazing.
I'm off to find more recaps.
