Quote of the Week

“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.”

-Carol Welch

I struggled this morning with what to post.  My heart remains heavy and my prayers remain with those who were at the Boston Marathon on Monday.  Just two days ago, although to me, it still seems surreal.  This quote stuck out at me because in light of the incident, I and I believe all of us, are in need of medicine.  This says it perfectly.  Keep moving.  Keep running.  Never give up.  Don’t let anyone take your joy.  Keep up your healthy physical, emotional, and status because to do anything less would allow the horrible person or group responsible for the bombing to claim victory.  And we, as runners, we, as Americans, have already risen above that.

If you’re looking for something to do to honor those affected by the bombing at the Boston Marathon, Another Mother Runner posted some GREAT suggestions in their blog 10 Ways to Support Boston!  I am ordering the shirt (option #1), I will run a virtual race this Saturday to honor the victims (option #2), and I will run with my niece on May 15th for 26.2 minutes (option #7).  What will you do?  Above all, just keep moving :).
