For All of the Women...

"The world is full of people who will go their whole lives and not actually live one day. She did not intend on being one of them." - A reminder from the magnet on my desk Meredith Emerson , who want to hike and run and bike and play in the woods without fear, today's run is dedicated to you. Ray and I didn't know Meredith, but we have not been able to stop talking and thinking about her. Her story and our lives are full of connections - and our prayers go out to her family.

... like my sisters Rachel and Holly who are making dreams into reality, this week of training is dedicated to you. Rachel started her doctoral program this week and Holly has been accepted into both of her top colleges!

.... like my Sage Endurance buddies (guys, too!) and long time friend Carly , who have committed to big (and sometimes scary) training plans this year, this first month of the new year is dedicated to you. Run strong on Saturday, Claire (and Dave)! the moms living at Genesis Home, doing the everyday work to face the fear of the unknown, but not be its prisoner, this year dedicated to you.

To whom and to what are you dedicated today, this week, this year?
