Today, 1000+ runners and walkers participated in the “5.2 at 5,” an event created by Badass Fitness and designed to “finish the Boston Marathon” symbolically on behalf of the runners who were not able to do so last Monday. Figures are still being tallied, but we raised more than $12,000 for Boston and the amount of morale, support, and solidarity with other runners and Bostonians was, as the old credit card commercial says, “priceless.”
From one finish line
That went uncrossed by many
Sprints toward hope grow
Wife of one, Mom of two, Friend of many. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
