Occasionally Michael and I run with a group in Overland Park, KS on Sunday mornings. It's a group of about 50-100 folks that meet at various local running stores, and then take off on an 8-10 mile run together. Today we ran for Boston.
Before the run we collected donations for the victims of Monday's events. They also mentioned that yesterday at the Garmin Marathon in Olathe, KS, they raised about $2,500, which was awesome!
This week we met at Lucy Active Wear, in Town Center Plaza. The organizers asked everyone to wear Boston Marathon colors, which we did. They also handed out miniature racing bibs that read "We are all Boston Marathoners at heart", which Michael and proudly displayed.
It will obviously be a while before the victims of this tragedy are recovered in their own way. But hopefully some of the money we raised, and from other events like this one, will help in some small way. Have a great week!
... be great today!
