This is how it works-
I love to run but there are times when I would rather not. This is when the voices start. Chants, name calling, guilt and reverse psychology is how they get me up and out the door. I don't really mind the voices and have actually started looking forward to their daily calls. Together we have formed a running club that supports, encourages and competes with each other. I love these peeps. They are much more experienced, talented and tougher than I am. Pushing me out the door, through the hard miles and up the monster hills when I am feeling lazy or want to give up. Some people have "real" training partners, coaches and support crews. My team is ALWAYS with me and helps me to keep my eye on the prize and not veer off the track. Sounds crazy- Yeah, probably is.........

Miles 57 - 60 With Friends

Today's run was short and sweet. Because I have ran for 21 days straight without a “rest” day and because time was limited (this is the main reason). It was 4 quick miles on the treadmill..... did I mention a heat index around 110 outside today? No thanks. The One Mile of Honor event is at 168 “attending”. Still picking up a few of the AWESOME people everyday. Thanks.

Today, for miles 57 - 60, it was my privilege to run IN HONOR of some wonderful people.

57th mile Sam Frazier
58th mile Don Dockter
59th mile Pat Rhodes
60th mile Harold Rhodes

Once again, I am humbled and grateful to have been granted this privilege. They have joined the VOICES club and tomorrow, WE will run again and add a few more. Fight on, friends.

In times of great despair and uncertainty, it helps to know you’re not alone and that there is an answer–hope.
