The day started with the live steam viewing of the elite women Shalane Flanagan finishing 4th in 2:27:08 and my running idol Kara Goucher finishing 6th in 2:28:11 both just amazing performances. I get back to my day job as my phone pings with text alerts from my running friends that I am following in their Boston quest from afar. Later in the day I check my phone and see a disturbing message about a bomb at the Finish line and immediately start checking updates to see who had crossed and who hadn’t.. Shock and dismay. Could this really be happening?
