Sad day for sport.

Details are still emerging about what happened at the Boston Marathon, but given what has happened in the past it seems fair to assume that someone has chosen to use it to further their own agenda, be it political or religious.

My thoughts go out to all of those affected by this selfish act.

The atmosphere this morning in Australia, half way across the world, is pretty sombre.  And I think it is because it feels like they have targeted each and every one of us.  It doesn’t matter about your age, race, social status or political ideology – running is something we all do.

But I am sure, much like the response to what happened in London and NY, the City of Boston and its marathon will come back next year  – bigger and better than ever.
