The local running club organized a run dedicated to Boston, so my roommate and I brought the dogs out and joined them. (we are third and forth from the left). The group did the same route they do on their weekly fun runs, which is a 1-miles warmup followed by a 2-mile run around the park.
My roommate is running the marathon this upcoming weekend (10k for me! yikes!) so she wanted to run a little more. We ended up doing 5 miles total.
I know that going on a fun run isn't really giving anything to Boston in a physical sense, but I have always been a believer that positive thoughts and large group support can really help someone (or somewhere) overcome almost anything! So if you are in Boston or affected by the tragedy, just know that a whole bunch of us in Central Illinois are sending positive thoughts your way! <3
