It is September 20, 2012. I am writing this letter to you both from 38,000 feet. In two days I will be facing a true challenge…
The 2012 USA 50k trail championships.
For the past 7 months you both have been there to pick me up and tell me how proud you are of me. Hearing you and your mother encourage me each day has made a difference in my training… it has given each run purpose.
I am taking this time to thank you. I want you both to always remember how important you are to me and your mother. Purpose lies deep inside but love can draw it out. In two days I will run each mile breathing the words you both and your mother have given me.
