From the Eugene Marathon website...

Honoring Boston

The outpouring of support for Boston from the running community has been incredible.  If you haven't already, check out our Facebook page and see for yourself (you don't have to be a Facebook user).  Don't miss Twittertoo.  We are proud to be a part of this strong community and plan to honor the victims, runners and the city of Boston during Eugene Marathon weekend. Here are few things you can be a part of:
  • Black Ribbons will be provided to all participants at packet pick-up.
  • Follow #Eugene4Boston and #EugeneMarathon. Join in and use those tags for your posts, tweets and photos. 
  • Sign our huge #Eugene4Boston banner at the expo.  We will send it to BAA after the race.  We've reached out to marathons after ours to do the same. 
  • A moment of silence on race day with 2013 Boston elites Craig Leon (3rd American) and Stephanie Rothstein-Bruce (3rd American).  
  • We encourage all runners to place #Handsoverhearts as the cross the finish line.

I'm really looking forward to be part of these activities to honor the running community and especially those in Boston. 

I know a lot of runs are planned for today, in honor of Boston victims. Doesn't it seem like it's been more than one week? Are you planning on joining any local tribute runs? 


And from this past weekend's 40th birthday party on the trails...

I lagged behind to catch my breath take a picture
Three gorgeous laps on a 2-mile loop followed by a luscious family style pub lunch of oyster shooters, steamed clams, spinach salad, and grilled cod sandwich w/ a cilantro aioli sauce. Oh yeah, and carrot cake! Nom nom!
