Not a lot to say that hasn’t been said all over.  Pretty sad and despicable stuff.

On a private level, two things stick with me.  Having recently had a marathon pulled out from me at the last minute for events out of my control, I can only imagine how much worse it would be to get 20 – 25 miles in and then have it cancelled on you and the bonus of an uncertain and unsafe environment.  I know others were killed or hurt, but that’s where the most personal empathy resonates for me.  The hundreds or thousands who had a dream snatched from them at the last step.  Make Sandy look like a wimp.

And that clock time – 4:09.  My estimates look pretty good for going a bit faster than that – but that’s a very possible time for me.  Thinking of my family being there is disconcerting.
