10 reasons why I am running the Boston Marathon

       1. Because I have two legs.
       2. Because I am alive.
       3. Because I don’t take #1 or #2 or so many other lesser things for granted.
       4. Because it’s for the GREATEST possible cause.
       5. Because Boston is my home.
       6. Because I’ve been a spectator for long enough.
       7. Because if not now, when?
       8. Because I’d like to experience a marathon as more than just a metaphor.
9     9. Because I don’t want my sons’ most poignant marathon memory to involve a lock-down.
       10.  Because I need the exercise.

Congrats on deciding to run the Boston Marathon! I am planning on running it the next time around, because I had an emergency appendectomy a few weeks back. Sadly, this does not allow me to attend this year, but I wish you the best of luck in running it!
