Tomorrow I'll be on a plane heading to Seattle!!!
|2011 Seattle RnR Marathon|
I'm ready to run the Seattle Rock & Roll Marathon!
This race for me isn't about the medal or a PR.
It's about honoring the fallen.
My goal for this race is just to remember why I run and that I'm able to run and honor those who cannot.
For those of you running, look for the wear blue mile just after the half and full marathoners split.
Say thank you to the volutneers at the water station because many of them are either in the military or are family members.
Each of the flags will have a ribbon with a name of a fallen Soldier.
Say thank you to those holding the flags because many of them are wives & husbands, mothers & fathers, sons & daughters, brothers & sisters, and friends of the Soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice.

For the Families, For the Fighting, For the Fallen
