4.19.13- For Boston.
If you are an avid runner and athlete…What feelings do you associate with running? I have been thinking about that very question this week. We run because weÂ have the ability, we have the desire,Â andÂ who cantÂ appreciateÂ the invigorating feeling that comes with finishing. The journey we took to get to that finish line, the support and encouragement we had along the way, the power of accomplishment. Why do you run?
“Runners are real people. They don’t run for money or recognition, they do it out of passion. Most have day jobs that pay the bills, and running is a labor of love.Â The human body is capable of amazing physical deeds. If we could just free ourselves from our perceived limitations and tap into our internal fire, the possibilities are endless. Most dreams die a slow death. They’re conceived in a moment of passion, with the prospect of endless possibility, but often languish and are not pursued with the same heartfelt intensity as when first born. Slowly, subtly, a dream becomes elusive and ephemeral.Â Pursuit of a passion matters more than the passion itself. Immerse yourself in something deeply and with heartfelt intensity – continually improve, never give up – this is fulfillment, this is success.” Dean “Karno” Karnazes
Today we lift up Boston. We mourn the deaths and the disaster and at the same timeÂ we celebrate the life and our greatÂ freedom. Our freedom to run… or not toÂ run. Our freedom to choose. Thank you to the men and women that serve our Nation and provide us with these abilities. Together we stand against terrorism. We run. And we won’t be shaken!
