Thanks so much for all of your concern for me and my family over yesterday’s events. Micah and I spent much of the afternoon responding to texts and e-mails and phone calls and Facebook postings inquiring after our safety and we so much appreciate your thoughts and support.
We are doing well, and despite the presence of heavily armed guards outside our hotel and on many of the street corners in downtown Boston, we went out and enjoyed the beautiful day.
I was hoping to write a more detailed account of the race today, but that will have to wait until tomorrow night when I am home and at my computer instead of writing from my mobile devices. But for now I will say that I feel like I ran a good, solid race. My pace was more consistent than other races I’ve run and I feel like that is progress, even though at 3:25, my finish time was a few minutes off my PR. My knee held up well, although I did feel it nearly the whole race. And the crowds were amazing. I laughed and cried (on the inside) to see all the excitement and support for the runners. Boston is truly a great race to run.
I’ll post more about it tomorrow, but until then, I just want to thank you all again for your thoughts and notes. We truly appreciate them, and you.
