My Plans Have Not Changed | I Will Not Run Boston...
....until I earned it.
Despite the horrific tragedy of Monday AM.
Despite the hours of despair I felt looking for friends
Despite the violation I feel against the sport and our country
I will run the Boston, when I earn it.
I support and applaud anyone who wishes to join a team or charity to run Boston, but I will not.
I feel that the best way I can honor the heritage and what it means to me, is earn my place there. So many will earn that right, before me - and they should be there.
I feel that those who ran this year - should automatically receive an entry. They earned it, in more ways than I could ever.
I am humbled that two companies have asked me to join their Boston team for 2014. I turned them down.
I have not earned the right to be there.
As many of you - Boston has my heart. Whether it be on the roads in Las Vegas or wherever I race.
Someday, I will be there - just not, for awhile.
