F F Linkup

Hey all you runners and or fitness's Fitness Friday Linkup...Go on over to Running Bloggers and add in your link to participate! 

I'm continuing to work out at the gym with my hubby and kids and have seen definite improvement in my hubby's shape and cardio health.  I am so proud of him for going to work out every day even when he is tired...he is so motivated to get the weight off and get healthier.  We are closer as a family as a result of our YMCA escapades. That being said I just want to say something about the events that happened earlier this week in Boston.

The bombing at the Boston Marathon has brought a heaviness to my runner's heart. Yet, I have seen such an outpouring of love and hope from the community of runners and non-runners, it is AMAZING. All over the blogosphere I have witnessed courage, strength, prayers and hope going out to all of Boston and it warms my heart.  

We will forever remember the events of April 15, 2013 as a terrible and senseless tragedy..but we will also remember the extravagant outpouring of support, love, hope and unity of the nation.

We will not go quietly into the night, we will rise up as one in Unity and say to those responsible...Whatever you had hoped to accomplish was overshadowed by how everyone...the hero's, supporters, and the entire nation responded to this tragedy.

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
