I'm back in Boston now - starting my PhD program (yes I travel a lot).
On my way here, I was struck by this Boston Magazine cover.
The image consists of shoes from Boston Marathon runners. Even more striking is the simple but powerful phrase " We Will Finish The Race."
As Boston begins the repair work on its shattered emotional state, I think many of us can apply the concept of "race finishing" in various aspects of our lives.
And no matter how discouraged you may feel at times, remember that you will finish the race.
