I have never met anyone stronger than Phillip Hernandez. He could outrun me even after he'd been on a bike ride and a run BEFORE we went for a run together. To annoy me he would run backwards pretending to "check on" me, but really he wanted me to know he wasn't even trying very hard and was still beating me!
Phil pushed my limits. He helped me become more than I thought I could be, both in sports and in life. He always thought I could do anything. That theory was seriously tested after he died. I never imagined that one of the "things" I would have to do would be to learn to live without him.
I am running the Widow Dash 5K to help other widowed people figure out how to do the hardest thing they have ever done...and to provide hope, laughter, and a bit of sunshine along the way. Your support makes a huge difference. I know Phil would be grateful.
