We Ran

Today was incredible. In 90+ heat 5,000 people... men, women, and children ran and/or walked in memory of the 600+ screaming eagles who passed away, represented by flags in the middle of the division parade field. It was worth every step... I am also very proud of C who ran beside me! Couldn't of had a better running partner!

C and I after running a mile in 90+ southern heat and humidity.

Year two down in memory of my friend and in memory of all fallen soldiers. I plan on running this run until I no longer can. So until next year -

Run for the Fallen 2011
