bostonNearly 3,000 runners hit the pavement on Sunday 21 April 2013 in downtown Raleigh to remember the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing last week.  Those who showed up at Moore Square for the 3-mile Boston Memorial Run were there to show solidarity and their support for Boston.  Three people were killed in the pair of blasts, and more than 180 people were injured.   Organizers were expecting about 300 runners – and over 3,000 showed up.   Many runners who crossed the finish line Sunday afternoon said they did so for those who couldn’t on Monday.  Coming together makes all of us stronger; it is part of the recovery phase.   Runners go through the recovery phase after they run. They need to heal, let their muscles, body, mind and spirit all come back together to be stronger – and as a Nation we need to heal.  Huge props to the nOg Run Club for helping organize this event and kudos to Raleigh’s BRAVEST and Raleigh’s FINEST for a strong showing.  Wake & District was honored to send a piper to play Amazing Grace during a moment of silence and remembrance.

For Boston, stay wicked strong!
