I haven’t run since Sunday because the weather has been stormy, but I’ll be out sometime soon with this bib on my heart.

The Boston Marathon website (www.baa.org) posted a Statement from Thomas Grilk, Executive Director of the Boston Athletic Association the day after the marathon.  Here is the last paragraph:

“Boston is strong. Boston is resilient. Boston is our home. And Boston has made us enormously proud in the past 24 hours. The Boston Marathon is a deeply held tradition – an integral part of the fabric and history of our community. We are committed to continuing that tradition with the running of the 118th Boston Marathon in 2014.” (www.baa.org)
