Join us for our RUN/WALK - Tuesday, APRIL 16 as we honor and show our runner/walker solidarity with BOSTON!
Wear a race shirt or if you do not have one... wear blue/yellow for Boston Marathon colors!
Our hearts and prayers go out to all in Boston ...
*We joke about running with thousands of friends, but it really is true. In a large part, the running community is made up of thousands upon thousands of friends who don't know each other yet, but as soon as we recognize a race shirt or backpack in the airport or grocery store, we strike up a conversation and we know how kindred our spirits really are.
This is why yesterday hurt so much. Whether we have qualified or not, whether we have run Boston or not, whether we have even run a marathon or not, we are all runners, and a part of us soars whenever we see our brothers and sisters fly down Boyleston Street. Always that flight should be in joy, but yesterday it was so much different.
All of us in the running community mourn this attack on our peaceful sport, and our thoughts and prayers are with those who suffer.
Please join us in dedicating the next miles you run, whether they be a block or 4-mile training run/walk at a time, to the people of Boston.
We will be doing that TODAY - Tuesday, April 16 ... Join us at the store if you can... or do it on your own!
Run in peace,
All of us at Fleet Feet Sports Baltimore
