Coming up short – compelled to post

I’ve been trying to think of something to say about the bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line yesterday.

Needless to say, I’ve been coming up short.

I’ve been reminded – over and over – about this post, more than a year old at this point. Leaning into why I run (even when I’m not actively running) and committing my race Saturday to those affected in Boston.

May all beings have happiness and its causes,
May all beings be free of suffering and its causes,
May all beings never be separated from bliss without suffering,
May all beings be in equanimity, free of bias, attachment and anger.
