Today I ran 3.17 miles.
It’s a milestone of sorts since those three miles put me over 300 miles on this pair of shoes. 300.41 to be exact. These shoes are now retired.
The first time I wore these shoes was back July 18th, 2008. In fact, the first run was actually a race. The SeaFair Torchlight 8k.
But it was more than that. You see, an old friend of mine recently lost her daughter, and while I couldn’t do very much for her and her family, I could run in her honor.
A number of years ago, her daughter Justice and I actually ran a 5k together, so I thought that I could do something like that to honor her.
And so I did.
It was a miserable run. Super hot, ugly run.
But I ran for Justice.
