Join the Boston Strong Minneapolis Run
Last Monday, the running community was rocked when bombs were detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three lives were lost and nearly 200 others suffered injuries. Amidst this chaos and heartache, so many stories of bravery and hope have emerged. Although the suspects have been caught, many questions remain.
In a very small act of solidarity, Minneapolis Running, in partnership with run blogger Pavement Runner, is helping to organize a memorial run with over 100 other cities nation wide. Details of the event can be found on our events page. Whoever wants to, is invited to meet at 7 am tomorrow, Monday April 22. We will meet outside the Wilde Roast Cafe on St. Anthony main. One week after the horrific events, we run to honor those impacted by those events.
It will be very low key and informal. We encourage you to donate to the One Fund if you feel so inclined. We will not be taking a collection.
Nathan started running when he was 14. 20+ years later, he's still going. When he's not running, he enjoys exploring the city with his son, finding new restaurants with his wife, traveling, or backpacking.
