26.2 for Boston

Blue Ridge Marathon Running for Boston

I feel obligated to run. Just go out the door and run.

Then it hit me today. I wanted to join the Run 26.2 for Boston event on Facebook and hit 26.2 miles for the week when I cross the finish line of Saturday's Blue Ridge Half Marathon.

No matter where you are or how much you run or what you're training for, join the online movement to #RunforBoston. Also check out our posts on the #RunChat blog on ways you can help and show your support.

Post your miles. Post your photos in your race shirts. Stand as one.

It's for the runners.

It's for the spectators who pack every finish line.

It's for the volunteers who give us endless hours of help on the course.

It's for Boston.
