Over the past year, since being I was matched through IR4 with Carly C. I have dedicated all my runs to her. Putting those miles in for someone who is so special is what fills my runner heart with joy. Last October, I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Carly and her family at my Allstate Atlanta 13.1 Marathon in Buckhead and I cried every single second of those last miles knowing she was at the finish line.
A runner’s pace may be swift or slow, but I never question the joy of their giving hearts. So tomorrow, show your support for running by grabbing the National Running Day Badge and get out there! Even better, share your runner story and inspire someone new to find the same love we share for the pavement and trails!
