I was surprised how close Monday's events struck home for me, since I have no ties to Boston, and I don't think I've even ever been there. But as a runner, the attack on MY community hurt me deeply, and I cried most of the long drive home.

Blogger Elyse Anders expressed my feelings best in her post here.

"But the scar. The trust that the finish line will be a place of glory and celebration, that’s marred. The finish line is now a place where our brothers and sisters and allies were brutally attacked. That scar… that’s not going away. 
I’m still crying. I don’t know when I’ll be able to stop."
