I don't really have a race to recap for you today. But, I do have a run to recap.
A couple months ago, I received word that my high school track and cross country coach had passed away. It was shocking to hear because he was the same age as my dad. I went to school with his daughters. I could only imagine their pain.
Last week I saw a notice on Facebook that there was a run being organized in his honor. So, I printed off the registration form, sent in my fee and let them know that even though I wouldn't be able to make it back to WI to run with everyone that I would run on Saturday in honor of him.
Saturday morning I met a group of friends for a long run here in TX. They were privileged to hear me talk about Mr E and the impact he had on my running career.
Thanks to Mr E, I am and continue to be a runner.
My junior year in high school with the team that Mr E helped coach to a state championship.
