Hours later I emerged from yoga and my phone had lit up with messages and missed calls. I read the first one without reading the rest. My high school friend wanted to know if had run Boston today. Was I okay? I thought perhaps he had gotten confused -- we had talked about how I wanted to run it one year -- and I knew he was aware I have been dealing with injuries. "No I didn't run. Really hoping for 2015. Still coming back from injury :(" I responded. And then I listened to a voicemail. And I read another message. And I understood what he had meant.
I had typed a post about how I feel but decided it has all been said already or perhaps should not be said. I will just say that my heart hurts as a human and also as a runner. I did want to check in so that everyone would not worry. It was brought to my attention that the bunny bloggers were concerned about my whereabouts yesterday. You are all a sweet bunch.
I missed "Monday Mario" so will include a photo. What made me feel better yesterday was giving those furry cheeks a good snorgle.
