I remember workers stopping traffic the day Air Force Ones Red White And Blue

since I crossed the Boston Marathon's finish line in 2011 the same scene now marred by tragedy and lined with crime scene tape my eyes welled. This time, though, for sorrow rather than the joy of having completed the world's most prestigious footrace. Monday, it was a day that appeared to mirror for so many my run two years ago.

Tragedy happens every day across the world, but rarely does it hit so hard or afflict an athletic community with such tight bonds and supportive networks, especially during a time usually filled with triumph and celebration.

It's what everyone in Boston did.

Marathon runners will persevere after Boston tragedy

Being in this city for the full weekend two years ago, I was immersed in Air Force 2 Shoes All White

As I watched my Twitter feed ignite and text messages roll in with news of the chaos emerging from near the finish line along Boylston Street in Boston, my jaw dropped.

But out of all that, I was also reminded of the good the first responders, runners and everyday heroes who leapt into action after such an already trying day.

And then, for the first time Air Force 1 Mid Red

That's what happened Monday. Like millions across the world, I was glued to television newscasts as events unfolded. I grasped for any piece of information before taking a step back to think about how radically different my experience at Boston was.

On Monday, that spot where I encouraged a fellow runner also near where my fianc and my coach's wife watched and cheered was decimated by an act of violence, reminding us that there is evil within the world.

I only hope these are the sorts of memories people can walk away with, bearing in mind this sport is about accomplishments not about cowardice.

And for those who were injured, killed or otherwise affected, it's what they would have wanted and expected from this resilient and steadfast community.

The Boston Marathon is a spectacle with runners celebrating the success of having logged thousands of miles, bagged a qualifying time and stuck with a sport for so long it becomes a part of who they are rather than just what they do.

I remember high fiving marathon onlookers, taking orange slices from giddy children and being aided and treated like an Olympic athlete the entire weekend.

the running culture loaded with race expos and surrounded by logo covered marathon jackets. I was treated like a star.

A lot can change within two years, but one thing that has ticked on with honor, devotion and prestige for 117 consecutive years is the Boston Marathon.

And, sadly, I thought how the race through the meandering two lane country roads and widening city streets will never again be the same.

before the race so I could grab a picture at the start with my coach and mentor. I remember wading through the hoards of people at the packet pick up the sense of camaraderie is unavoidable.

I remember turning the final corner onto Boylston Street, getting ready to make my final surge only to notice another runner struggling. Without thinking, I grabbed him, told him some jumbled thing about finishing strong, and I watched him straighten his stride and persevere.

It's a day of equality. Yes, some are elite and fast. No, you probably won't win. But everyone pulls for each other.

Though about 4,000 others finished ahead of me that sunny Monday afternoon, we were all striving for a common goal and were being encouraged every step of the way.

Now, more than ever, is the time to log those miles. Push on to that next finish line. Check off that next race. Embrace a Air Force 1 Dark Blue sport that blends personal fortitude with camaraderie and challenges you to the core.
