Run for Boston

Tonight, the Brickell Run Club held a run in honor of the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. Several runners in attendance had run that marathon before and others knew friends who were there. It was awe-inspiring and humbling to see how in the face of tragedy, people come together to reaffirm the good in the world.
