Noise Reduction .59

Hey There…

What a tragedy that just hit Boston… As an endurance athlete, qualifying and racing one year at Boston is a Top 3 sporting goal of mine. It’s the greatest marathon. For all those people who work so hard to get to that race, it’s such a disappointing scar left in their memory. My heart goes out to each and everyone affected, the race itself, and the great city of Boston.

Always keep on running, no matter what!

And with that mentality in mind, this week’s Noise Reduction is below for you.
