Put one foot in front of the other and just keep going

As I prepare to run my first marathon, the Chicago Marathon on October, I have the pleasure of doing something that is so natural, something so organic, and something so universal.  Yet the incident in Boston leaves me saddened yet elated at the same time as I think of those runners who had the same intentions when they set out on the morning of April 15th.  Running is a sport of good will.  The only person you are competing against is yourself, by setting a new PR.  You will only hear cheers, no jeers, and it is the cheering for people you don't know but have come together for one purpose - to cross the finish line. There are no losers, only winners.  And for this reason, I will put on my running shoes and continue to put one foot in front of the other, until I cross the finish line. Just as in life, when tragedy strikes, all we can do is put one foot in front of the other and keep going.
