CNN Radio reached out to me in hopes of sharing my story which they felt was uplifting for the folks that were impacted by the devastating events that took place at this years Boston Marathon. Being from Boston and a regular competitor at the Boston marathon the events hit close to home. Now after a few weeks of a range of emotions from being scared, sad, angry, I now a bit more clarity and really just makes me want to live more and appreciate life more!  Hope you enjoy the piece
