Boston on My Mind

I'm sure that most of you know by now that there were 2 explosions at Monday's Boston Marathon injuring hundreds and killing at least 3. At the time that it happened, I was actually outside running a half-mile through the park after I had been inspired to run by a fitness fashion blog posted in honor of that day's Boston Marathon. It was later that evening that I actually read the news online and was instantly glued to online feed trying to hear what happened. I was deeply saddened that someone(s) could commit such a horrendous and despicable act at an event that celebrates fitness, accomplishment and brings pride to a great city.

Although I have never run a marathon (heck, I can barely run half a mile), I do have fond memories from my visit to Boston several years ago where I and a Chinese college exchange student attempted to do as much sight seeing as we could in a short time frame. We were able to take in the town square and Boston Harbor. Later, I needed to use the restroom but everything downtown was closed to the public except for the nightclubs and I didn't have enough change for the pay toilets. Luckily, my Chinese friend was able to navigate us to Boston's Chinatown where we found one restaurant open that was willing to let me use their facilities for the cost of a Bubble tea. Good times!

Anyways, a lot of people were wearing red today in honor of the victims of the Boston tragedy. So, I wore red today and had some Boston baked beans for dinner and I have plans to do some more running later this week.
