Explosions in Boston at finish line of marathon w injuries

Boston Marathon

PostBy: the snowman On: Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:38 pm

Today is a sad day that resonates on many different avenues. First, to the runners and bystanders who were injured in this senseless attack. The city of Boston and the race itself. There are a lot more, however, I'm at a loss for words. As a runner and a half marathoner, the last thought that runs though a runners head is the possibility of an attack. Split times, race pace, distance to finish line, hydration levels, fatigue level and such are the norm, not is there going to be a bomb or an attack on the race I'm running today.

My wife and I have run hundreds of races though out the years and our safety at any of the events was never a concern. Until today, road races such as the Boston Marathon and others were the last true athletic event not subject to extreme security. Until today it never had to be. The logistics of undertaking such a step is almost impossible not to say expensive. This evening my shop has been flooded with phone calls from concerned friends, family and neighbors asking if I heard the tragic news. I wish I could say it is just a hoax.

My wife and I have a large number of races this summer which includes a number of medium to high profile half marathon races. I have been asked if the events of today will change our plans to run in any further races. Currently I have to say NO, however, I believe the events of today will have a ripple effect on any race from this date forward. Will the races my wife and I are scheduled to run be canceled or will these races be drastically changed, only time will tell.

I have been repeatedly asked what my feelings and thoughts are concerning today's attack. I'm sad, concerned for the victims of Boston, worried about the ramifications this will have on my sport, and mad as hell. The rest are not suitable to be printed on a public forum. It is my hope that those in charge of the investigation find the individual or individuals responsible for today's attack. If it were up to me, there would be no plea deals or long prison sentences. I am usually very civil, however, if left to me I would have a very public hanging of those responsible. Those who were injured or family members of those who died or injured would be allowed to pull the lever. I know this topic has nothing to do with burning coal, however, today's events underscores how events like this are an attack on our very lifestyle, sense of security, our nation and its people and should not be tolerated.

Whew this is sad. My cousins wife went with her friends to the race. She's pregnant so she went to cheer 'em on. She was near the blast but far enough away thank god. Her friends ran through that area about 20 minutes before the blast. I was putting a movie on for my daughter when i seen what happened and let me tell you my skin crawled. Such a horrible act for someone to commit.

This is a tragedy of major proportions, and I'm praying for the afflicted. If (as for 9/11) there does prove to be a Saudi connection, which country (that is not named Saudi Arabia) will we invade next?

Not to worry, if it was foreign terrorism Obama will just apologize for supporting the Juoose and insulting the Prophet Mohammad and beg his forgiveness.

... and of course and we all saw this coming... we need more security.

He could be right, there is plenty of right wing extremists in this nation just as nutty as the Islamic terrorists.

The trouble is that he forgot to mention it could be the result of left wing extremists becsue there is plenty of them in this country just as nuts as the Islamic terrorists.

Then we have it narrowed down to an extremist, left, right or someplace else doesn't much matter to those poor people involved. Just let the investigators do their thing & hopefully it will all come out the bad part these days is that anyone can go online & learn to build an explosive so now it's that much harder, it used to be that bomb makers had almost a signature of their work but not so anymore.

Let us never forget that President Obama's good friend and confidant Bill Ayers was a left wing terrorist bomber.

My thoughts exactly. Where was Bill and his bomber buddy Bernadine Dorn at the time of this blast?

Maybe the POTUS was thinking out loud when his friend the terrorist Bill Ayers over heard him say “what can we do to break the sequester and make the peasants want us to spend more of their money”.

To be honest, I was only making a point that there are terrorists from the left. It is scary to think that our President associates closely with them however. it is even scarier to think that in spite of this we elected him, but that should be for a different topic thread.

Yeah but cap, then they'll find he has mental health problems cause his Dad yelled at him for pulling wings off butterflies & we'll pay for the *censored* forever--law enforcement is real good in this Country--it's the legal system that sux--bleedin heart faggots. When caught, he/they ought to be put death real slowly-- perhaps in Cainbridge Square--that might deter some of this kinda *censored*.
