Dear Boston, I Love You

Dear Boston,

I love you SO much.

I ran for you today. With a heavy heart and a clear mind. I ran negative splits for you today, but the first mile was really hard. I wanted to cry…but sweat.

I wanted nothing more in the whole world than to go to Berkelee. My mom took me to see you when I was 17. We ate so much lobster and clam chowder I thought I had gone to seafood heaven.

I thought it was cool that there was a whole other city that empathized with our traffic woes. You know, because ATLANTA.

I bought my senior prom dress from you. It was the most expensive piece of clothing I’d ever owned. I wore it again and again…to the opera, to perform, to parties. Every time I did, I remembered that trip. It was one of the best times I ever had, though short it may have been.

There’s a vibrancy to Boston. The people are nice, there everything to do…and the music.

I didn’t run then, but I do now. Maybe one day I’ll BQ and see you again when joy has been restored. Maybe I’ll see you again, My Friend.

With Love, Blue and Yellow,
