When I first began the whole racing thing I decided to make sure every race has meaning. Not just a time and place. This one is dedicated to all our troops. In honor of them I have my buddy's troop number on my back. They are currently oversees fighting for our freedom. And our freedom includes running free. My little 6.2 miles is nothing compared to the miles away they fight. But it's a small gesture of my gratitude.
*And on the back of my old race bib is the number 173; from my fastest race to date. Also, the number of his Airborne troops. Coincidence?!
Run with purpose!
