One run for Boston Ran Past My Parents’ House

20140412-163545.jpgI was visiting my mom today because she is having a rough time with her recovery from her knee replacement, so I thought the kids could cheer her up. As I was sitting in the rocking chair I noticed a group of runners in Route 17 and saw one with an American flag.

I mentioned it to my parents and they said that it was probably the One Run To Boston group. My parents saw it on the news this morning. I jumped out of the chair, grabbed my phone and ran outside. I yelled out to the group to ask them if they were running to Boston and if I could take a picture. They gladly stopped and posed and let me talk to them for a few minutes. They explained that they were running from New Haven to Northford, and they showed me the torch that was being carried from LA to Boston.

It was so awesome to see them and I wished I had the foresight to register to be a part of this event that ran right through my town!  I love the running community and what people do to help others.  I will be running my 26 mile training run this Friday and will be running virtually with The Boston Marathon World Run.  I wish so badly I could run the Boston Marathon.  It may not be this year, but I will someday run that race!
