April 19, 1995

If not for the events that happened between 9:01 AM and 9:03 AM, there would be no such thing as the Oklahoma City National Memorial Marathon.  I’d have probably run the Redbud Classic (which took place last week), or some other marathon.

An insignificant change in my life compared to the events of that day which changed and destroyed other lives forever.

I sit here today, one mile from the site and remember with sadness, the loss of 168 lives.  Today, there are not many people in Oklahoma City who won’t think back and remember exactly where they were when they heard what happened.  For some of us, exactly where we were when we heard the blast.  We remember what it felt like to look up at that building, gaping open with a wide wound.  There are no words to explain it.

On April 29th we will run with joy.

 “This is what the Memorial Marathon is about: realizing the preciousness of time, valuing one another, taking life as it comes and making something magic from it. Celebrating Life.”
