Not much to write about

I just couldn't do it.  I couldn't bring myself to write about my own trivial issues in light of what happened yesterday afternoon in Boston.

However, I did write about something close to what I talk about here.

Marathons are exhausting, grueling events.  They’re not for the faint of heart, and that’s when you’re not concerned about a bomb going off and injuring or killing you or those around you.  Now, it’s easy to decide to not to run one of these things.
Me?  I’m going to run the Boston Marathon.
Yes, it's a political website, and you may not share my political views.  That's cool.  This isn't about politics.  It's about how this despicable act has spurred me to publicly announce that I'm going to do something.

Will it require me to get even more fit?  Yes. 

I care nothing about winning.  I want to run it, and finish it, and call it a day.  I may never run a marathon again in my life afterward.  It doesn't matter.

People died yesterday because someone wanted us to be afraid.  I refuse to be scared.
