New Day

Today is the day AFTER the Boston Marathon tragedy.

In today’s A-D-D movie plot society with all the instant coverage and sensationalism around such events its sad that in two weeks this will be a all but forgotten except in and around the physical epicenter of the carnage.

The Boston Marathon or any marathon is such a grueling event. I know saying something like this is senseless is obvious but its also cruel. Eventually the culprits will be apprehended and this will give some people closure.

Anyone who knows me knows my stance on distance runners: I think they are nuts for the toll it takes on their bodies. That’s not to say I’m not impressed by their dedication and efforts but I still think they are nuts. The Boston Marathon is an institution so this act is cowardly and should be viewed as an act of terrorism. Peace to everyone today. Sorry no a$$ kicking,

    My heart goes out to all those that were effected by this sensless tragedy. At the time of this writing, they have shot and killed one of the suspects while his brother escaped and is on the run….enough said.
    I have to agree on the whole running marathon thing. If you want to do something that gives you a sense of accomplishment, do a good deed, volunteer, kill a spider, finish the Big Texan steak challenge. I think eating a 72oz. steak is insane but so is running for no reason other than to cross a finish line. The other thing is that they train for it all year. It’s a waste of time if you ask me….enough said.
    I wonder if they run and text…hmmm…
