The Boston Marathon 2014 – Healing A City

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon.  It’s easy, however, to believe that of all of the 35,000 runners in Boston to run the 2014 Boston Marathon have one focus, healing. This years Boston Marathon really is a piece of unfinished business necessary in the healing process.

Boston Strong

There are so many stories coming out of Boston that it is impossible to keep up with all of them — and the stories I’ve read carry the same theme, healing.  Many of us runners will not be in Boston physically this year, but all of us no doubt will be there in spirit.  Most of us know somebody who will be one of the 35,000 runners representing our running community.  Runners and non-runners from all over the world will be directing positive energy towards Boston — incredible healing energy.

Why My 100th Marathon Will Be My Final Marathon!

I love running and I love running marathons.  It has been 25 years since I crossed the finish line of my first ever marathon in Los Angeles on March 5, 1989.  Today, I have a total of 99 completed full marathons, and on May 4th I will cross the finish line of my 100th and final, marathon at the Colorado Marathon in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Ready to Finish Marathon 100

People who know me well really don’t believe I’ll retire from marathoning.  I even have a bet with a friend (which I can never win) that if I was to run another marathon I’ll owe him $100.  If I don’t, well, I can never collect.  Pretty much a “sucker’s bet!”  Never said I was smart!  Some are quick to say “Shut-up, I’ve heard this before and will see you at 101!”  But I’m telling you, it will not happen.
