Amy L. Marxkors, runner and author, wrote a commentary about the Boston Marathon bombings that does a beautiful job of capturing the spirit of the marathon, its participants and their supporters, and resilience of the running community in times of tragedy. It’s especially striking to me, since I just completed my first half marathon last weekend, and can relate to the struggles and joys she describes in the piece. It perfectly sums up the feelings I’ve been trying to put into words since Monday afternoon, and it really speaks to me both as a runner and as a human being. Please, check it out for yourself.
