A “thank you” is only a start to my level of gratitude and appreciation for every one that was a part of the #BostonStrong runs that happened world-wide on Monday. I am incredibly proud to be part of the running community and we came out and showed our support for our fellow runners, spectators, volunteers, staff, friends and family.
I wanted to send out a special thank you to those that organized their cities. Wow. We only had a few days to pull this together and how quickly it grew and spread was incredible. From groups of 5, to gatherings of a hundred, to cities that had 1,000 to 2,000+ people show their support. Every single run was a tribute to a runner’s spirit and passion and our continuing thoughts and well wishes for those affected from the Boston Marathon bombings.
I will have more to say and share and plenty more people to thank, but wanted to let you know how proud I am of what we accomplished as a community.
