We'll weather the weather.

My name is Nathan. I've failed too many times to count. I've fallen just as many. My girlfriend is my rock. I'm a long distance runner training for a marathon. I'm also a weather geek trying to pick out where to go to school. A lot of my post's will be motivation to keep running for this marathon, or weather related.

Last April 15th, Jeff Bauman was just a regular guy from Chelmsford, Massachusetts. He had never been to the Boston Marathon before but his girlfriend Erin Hurley was running so he went to cheer her on. He was near the finish line that afternoon.

Bauman locked eyes with the man we now know as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the bombing suspect who was later killed in a shootout with police. Bauman also saw Tsarnaev’s backpack on the ground. A few minutes later, the bomb in that backpack blew up. He lost his legs.

"I’m just glad I’m still here," Bauman says. "I see my family every day and I’m starting my own family now. I’m very thankful and grateful and there’s nothing but positivity and love in my life."

To see the full interview and read an excerpt of Jeff Bauman’s candid new book “Stronger,” go here.

Today.

We may not all be marathoners.
We may not all be the Olympic runners.
But we are runners, and runners come together whether we realize it or not.
Today we remember those who were lost, and wounded in a tragedy.
Today we run for those who can’t.
We are all Boston Strong.
We are all runners.


Today I announce that after I run my first marathon this fall. I will be running the 2015 Boston Marathon.

Today, we run together.

Whether you prefer running in the morning or at night.

Whether you prefer running alone or with others.

Whether you’re new to running or you’ve been at it for years.

Whether you prefer running around the block or running marathons.

Whether you live somewhere warm or cold.

Whether you prefer Nike, Adidas, Brooks, Saucony, Asics, or any other shoe.

Today, we lace up and run together.

Today, we run for Boston.

One year ago today, on Monday, April 15, 2013 at approximately 2:49pm, two bombs went off at the finish line of the 117th annual Boston Marathon. Seconds apart, the blasts resulted in the deaths of three people and the injuries of over 260 others. Please join me in a moment of silence this afternoon, at 2:49pm, in memory of Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi, and Martin Richard, and in solidarity with all surviving victims. Remember the Boston Marathon Bombings.
