Today was the 120th running of the Boston Marathon; both the men’s winner and the women’s winner were from Ethiopia. There were thousands of people running in the 26.2-mile race, including 60 Alaskans. This number most likely did not include my daughter since she no longer lives in Alaska. I was relieved to see a picture of her after she completed the race; then I knew for sure that she had survived it! I am very pleased with her accomplishment, but I am more pleased that the race is over and she is safe. Right now I am hoping and praying that she finds her driver’s license and/or is able to get on the airplane to fly home!
