Today is Boston's infamous Marathon Monday. I can't help but to have a heavy heart with memories of last year's marathon and the way it shaped our city. Banding together, there is an air of excitement & empowerment for the thousands that have come to run and support their loved ones. Seeing the runners board busses and head to the starting line at the Common this morning, brought tears to my eyes with the thought of how challenging it's been to reconcile the evil that affected us so profoundly- and with that, the hard work of many to sort through grief, to forgive, to recover, to continue training despite the memories and to persevere. Yep, we're feeling incredibly inspired by our city today and we have every reason to be-BOSTON STRONG!
