Stirring Stories

To Boston. With Love.

115th Boston Marathon

I remember when I qualified for the Boston Marathon
JJ paced me on a bicycle through the streets of Paris
I qualified for Boston. Just. We drank champagne to celebrate
In Boston I stayed with Eric & Kathy. Old friends
I remember the start of the Boston marathon
I remember the lone policeman who sang the national anthem acapella
He survived 9/11
We had our own journeys ahead of us
We held hands. We were one. We are one
We ran with each other. We ran with joy
You can’t destroy us
Leave us alone
