Run to remember. Run to recover.
For the 5k on base today, I let the anger, sadness, and frustration fuel me, and I ran a new PR. Second female and 4th overall of those who participated, with my time of 24:56.
I was smiling when I got home because as runners, we endure, we persevere, and I know across this beautiful country of ours, others were out there running for Boston, too.
My heart still aches, but my spirit refuses to be squashed.
