A Run with a purpose


It's here. I cannot believe it is August 22nd tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Run for the Fallen. A 65 kilometer run to honor Maine soldiers. I have been waiting for this all summer.
I am excited, nervous but yet calm and reflective.

I am disappointed that I am not 100% for this run but I am going to do whatever I can to honor each soldier along the way.

65 Maine soldiers that are no longer with us.

This run is not about me or how far, how fast or how long I go.

This run is about them. For them. For the families they left behind. For our freedom that they defend.

I am sure that tomorrow will be a very emotional day and tears will be shed.

I am just honored to be a part of it all.
