I started a Motivation Monday post on Monday morning with plans to finish it up after work, but during the day tragedy struck in Boston. It just didn’t feel right to finish my post, and I didn’t know what to say. Yesterday went by… and I still don’t know what to say. I’m in shock. And really, what could I possibly say that matters?
That said I’m all packed up:
As you read this, I’m in the midst of travelling from Canada, to New York City, to Utah, to LA for a two-day team relay race on Friday. My joy and excitement have turned to sorrow, so it only seems fitting that I will be racing with my two bestest virtual running pals: Running Rachel and Fit Mom in Training, along with some new running pals: The MF Dre, Angry Julie, and Lauren of Sugar Coated Sisters. I will hug them and squeeze them tight this weekend, just as I’ve been squeezing my children tight the last two nights.
I won’t let this tragedy stop me and together with the 11 other runners on my Ragnar Relay So Cal team, we will overcome.
