Boston Marathon explosions

Other than limping from marathon soreness and mentally shook up and tired, I am fine and safe.  I was not near the finish line when the explosions went off.  In the afternoon and evening after the marathon, Jana and I got probably close to 100 e-mails, phone calls, and texts, so we appreciate your concerns and thoughts.

My heart goes out to all the innocent victims of the bombing, including an 8-year old boy who lost his life.  Accordingly, I'm going to defer any celebratory mood or posting for now.  Ultimately, the marathon and marathon spirit has to go on, and we can't let the senseless coward(s) behind this prevail.  I will probably post my race report on Wednesday.


  1. Glad you are safe and unharmed. It is just unbelievable what happened.

  2. Glad you were well away when the chaos went down.
