Please don’t be offended by my annoying young nephew Johnny. While he does “drop the F bomb” in the spirit of Big Papi; he goes on and on and on...and on and on and on about HIS special catastrophy at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. I’m Steve Runner and I do NOT approve this message.
On May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, we are going to celebrate the life, and run with a beautiful soul: Jacob Tinkoff, and we’re going to finish what the runners of the 117th Boston Marathon started, crossing the finish line on Boylston Street. Join us in Boston, and be BOSTON STRONG. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5898951
Episode 303 of Phedippidations is out. It took me 4 days to put together and features some of the most eloquant voices of fellow runners who experienced the terror of the 117th Boston Marathon. I wish to GOD that I never had to produce such a show, but am so very thankful that my friends and fellow runners were there to share their experiences and thoughts. Most of all, I'm so grateful that they're safe.
On May 5th, we will run to the Finish Line of the Boston Marathon. We’re not going to be sad about it, we’re going to do what we DO, as runners. We’re going to run, together. We’re going to say a prayer for Jacob, a beautiful soul who made the world a better place with his love and music, and we’re going to honor those who were injured and lost their lives at the finish line of the 117th Boston. We will do this because we are runners: and we do not fear hatred.
I have such great memories of Fenway Park; it’s “just a building” that has been a big part of my life. And while baseball is “just a game” this building, and this game...really are much more that what they seem. To me, they mark moments in my life. My friend Eric and I are at the ballpark enjoying a great opening day!
It’s a beautiful spring day here in the city of Boston. I’m at Fenway Park to watch the home opener with my beloved Red Sox vs. the Baltimore Orioles. Baseball is back, and it feels “So good, so good, so good”.
