It is with a heavy heart that I write this post today. In the wake of such tragedies such as those in Boston yesterday, it is impossible not to reflect on the terrors of 6 years ago that struck our small college town in the beautiful blue ridge mountains of Virginia that I was fortunate enough to call my home for four glorious years. Like so many, I learned that out of such tragedy comes the resilience of the human spirit and that in the end, love does overcome all hate. Running has become such an important part of my life and watching the chilling videos and hearing the stories from yesterday’s tragedy made me want to lace up my sneaks and run today for the 32 that can’t. If you would like to find a way to support those affected by yesterday’s tragedies, my Husband’s Company made these flashy shirts. All proceeds from the sales will go directly to the Red Cross Eastern Mass division.
Thoughts and prayers with all of those suffering in Boston, and to my dear 32 Hokies, we will neVer forgeT.
