Meg's Miles

Tuesday, January 21, 2014
The story of what happened to Meg:
Meg Cross Menzies was tragically killed by a drunk driver while out for her morning run on January 13, 2014. As an avid runner, member of the Richmond Road Runners Club, and Boston marathoner, she was a member of the running family nationwide. In her honor, our hope is to raise awareness of drunk driving, texting and driving, and overall safety of runners and cyclists everywhere. 
I decided that I wanted to run five miles for Meg. I went to the gym on Saturday to run on the treadmill. I set up to do my friday session of Ease into the 5k so I did Week 3 Day 3 of that program. During the running session I got to 2 miles so I needed to do another 3 to get to my goal. I knew those 3 miles were going to be tough for me to get in but I accomplished my goal. I put 5 miles under my feet in about an hour and a half.

I was just really happy that I was able to be apart of such a great community this past Saturday that we came together to show how much the running community is there for each other.
