On Sunday morning Ellie and I woke up bright and early to make it over to the park in time for the Boston Solidarity Run. It was an event thrown together earlier in the week to show support for the events at the Boston Marathon. It wasn’t a race, it wasn’t timed, and there was no set distance. Just a group of runners/walkers/stroller pushers showing their support to those injured and lost, and to the city of Boston.
The run was pretty overwhelming. I’d say easily 600+ people were there by 9 am to start the run. We rather silently set off running around the outer loop of Delaware Park as a huge mass, all going at their own speeds and within their own groups. It was a pretty impressive sight, one of the biggest non-racing events I’ve ever taken part of.
