For the past few years every Memorial day I would push myself as hard as I could to honor the Men and Woman who gave their lives for us. I would run until my legs would start to lock up or do pull ups until my hands would bleed and just keep thinking its a little bit of pain. I would think about how many Men and Woman made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country together and safe. I would think about their families who live their lives without them praying and wishing to give anything to have them back. I would think about their children who will never know them. Then I would think about people who seem ungrateful for them. With these thoughts I had all the fuel I need to keep pushing.
A little bit of pain is such a small thing to give back.
Last year I was thinking of my next challenge when a friend recommended I run around the 13.8 mile circle around Dothan, AL carrying the American Flag. As I ran I was amazed by the support I received, people stopping to give me water, Gatorade and sometimes beer. After the run throughout the year I have been approached by many saying that they want to join if I do it again.
On Sunday May 29th at 8am I will be running the circle again. I am asking for as many runners/walkers as possible. If you can't make the run I have found an amazing charity Freedom Service Dogs of America that I ask you donate to show your support. LET'S GO AMERICA!
