For Boston

Marathon training goes on. Four miles tonight.

It was sunny and clear all day. It felt all wrong that the weather was so bright when the news I followed today was so dark.

Mile one, clouds rolled in and it started to sprinkle.

Mile two, the sprinkle turned into a pour, and then into hail. It felt good.

Mile three, the rain and hail cleared. I saw a woman wearing an I ❤ BOSTON shirt. I caught her eye and nodded as we ran by each other. She gave me a sad smile.

Mile four, I rounded a corner of the Green Lake path and saw the start of a rainbow in the distance.

For Boston.

Put one foot in front of the other. Keep moving forward.
