It’s a tough fact of life that we must face each and every day. Often our hobbies are attempts to escape from the reality that at times life can be unfair and even cruel.
And even our passions are not immune.
As the events that transpired at the Boston Marathon last year showed, sometimes tragedy is brought about willfully and with malice.
Other times… it just happens.
In the short time I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve had a lot of fun telling my personal stories, giving out hints, race reviews and poking fun at something I love so dearly. I prefer taking a light-hearted and humorous approach to this and life in general.
But there are some things that irk me, make me mad or in this case utterly friggin’ pissed off.
I read a news story today and it made me want to yell to the heavens at the top of my lungs.
