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.
