I am running to show my children my commitment to stay fit. I am leading them by example by letting them they too can stay fit and be active at any age. I am also doing it so that they to let terrorism stop them from pursing their dreams.... Many people stay do not go to the race due to the recent tragedy at the Boston marathon. But...God is good and American's are tough. We can make it though the toughest of times...if we trust in God and try our best!
