Mayorz Marathon


Today we are excited to be participating in Murphy and Stanley's first ever Mayorz Marathon. Pop over to their blog to check out all the action!



We wish all the Boston Marathon runners a great and uneventful race on Monday. We send special wishes to our friend Roy, who is running in his 5th Boston as part of the American Liver Foundation Team. Lady had the privilege of being there the first year he ran. Have a great race Roy!

We also wish Lady's BFF Tonya and her son Xav a great 5 k race this weekend. They are in Boston to cheer Roy on. Since the bombing Tonya has been doing the 5 k.

Tonya was at the marathon with her then 3 year old Rowan, the year of the bombing. Due to a strange series of events both Tonya and her dad were behind schedule so neither were at the finish at the time of the explosions, although they should have been. One of the best moments of my life was finding out they were ok. They were delayed in letting their loved ones know they were safe because even though Roy was only 2 km from the finish, and went to the bus to get his stuff, and Tonya had been locked down in a hotel, neither knew what was happening. It was only later that they found out and realized their error in not spreading the news that they were safe and sound. Tonya's life lesson is, if it looks serious, even if you aren't sure what it is, let your mom and husband know you are fine!

  13. That was a close call, and I'm so glad that they were okay. It's horrible that bad people can make us afraid of traditional fun events.
