Today I am dedicating my post not to running, but to the victims of the shooting in Aurora, CO. I am truly saddened but this horrific act. It is scary to think of how quickly one’s life can end or be changed forever by another person’s hand.
As I am on my long-run this afternoon, I will be thinking of those people affected AND especially of how grateful I am to be able to run today.
Keep living your lives this weekend, move forward, do not let one heinous act stop you from enjoying the life you were given–but do remember those who were not as lucky as you. Take every step this weekend with a feeling of thankfulness and try not to lose that feeling after the news outlets stop covering the events of early Friday morning.
