Posted Dec 16 2012 11:44am
To all the marathon moms, I want to invite you to dedicate your next marathon, whenever that will be, mile by mile, to each of the twenty-six innocent children and educators killed in Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut this past Friday morning. Our endurance will be but for a few hours, but the families and friends of these victims will have to endure for a lifetime.
