Boston

I know I owe you all a major pregnancy update (14 weeks!), but like most everyone else, Boston is weighing on my mind. 

I have incredible respect for anyone who runs a marathon. The months of training, the sacrifices, the discipline...it truly amazes me and I applaud runners everywhere. I felt SO bad for those who weren't able to complete their race yesterday due to the bombings, especially those so close to the finish line as it occurred. It truly is heartbreaking and my prayers go out to them, as well as of course the injured. 

I do hope that as a society we don't hibernate or turn public events into lockdowns. Every time I walk through security barefoot at an airport I can't help but feel as though the terrorists always win because they create permanent security changes out of terror and not necessarily effectiveness. I can only hope marathons aren't forever marked by metal detectors, a no-cell phone policy or whatever new policies people come up with thought of in fear. 

I won't hold my breath though.
