A 5k Done, Another To Run – Stories Never Cease To Amaze.

I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve plenty to share.
My last 5k, which was last Sunday, was the Benji McDowell run, honoring the fallen first responders that many over look…
I was never told his story, nor could I find any information on it, but for a moment that doesn’t matter. All I know is that he was a firefighter who laid down his life when time came. He will be missed by his family, friends, and community.
We runners gathered to honor him, and those like him.
At this particular race, I met some members of the 5k Crew:

Two sisters I met, Karen and Robin, embody the spirit of running without excuse. One had breast cancer and was hit by a car, they both have asthma, and among other problems they have faced, they both continue to run on. This proves that if we can run a little, we have no excuses! Running isn’t just physical, it’s mental and spiritual as well.

I met other runners, such as Sue and Bobbi Jo, and there is nothing quite like the bond we share in running, gathering to support the families of these fallen first responders.

Here’s my dad looking all “smexay” in the Breast Cancer Awareness sunglasses they were handing out.

Ok bananas and apples I get, but it’s so cruel to put cupcakes and cookies there too!
My next upcoming 5k will be at the Kyova mall on the 26th. If anyone wants to run with me, go to Tristate Racer’s website to see when, where and to sign up.
Peace, love, and find inspiration wherever you run,

  1. websites for chiropractors

    This added stress to an already over stressed person could be the last straw in the
    momentum towards disease, pain and suffering; in other words, only unhealthy people get sick.
    Most people, however, agree that Chiropractic treatments are a safe and effective means of addressing a plethora of
    medical conditions and states. In my experience, chiropractic care can be very effective
    in treating Repetitive Stress Injuries.
