"My Run"

Waiting for the movie to start! 

The best part of the evening was hanging out with my friends/running buddies.  We always have some good time and many laughs.  We met up for dinner before the show and caught up on all our lives happenings and then headed over to the movie.  The movie wasn't as great as I hoped it would be but I was still glad I watched it.  Funny to see what people wore for running in the late 90's which I didn't realize was so long ago...but after seeing all the crazy styles in the movie it was a little confusing because it seemed like it was from the 80's.  I graduated high school in 1997 and to me it seems like a few years ago...guess not!  As a runner you feel like you know some things about running...what to wear, what not to wear, what to eat, what not to eat and so on.  It was shocking to see what this guy wore and what he ate or didn't eat for that matter!  Maybe times have changed?  Maybe I think I know a lot about running and I really don't?  Just funny to watch some things.

This mans journey is incredible and all that he set out to do.  I love when people go after something that they are passionate about.  He did something he believed in and made it happen.  It was such a difficult thing to do day after day!  Wow!  He ran for a cause and brought attention to something dear to his heart.  I think a lot of us our passionate about something but are never sure what to do with it or how to go about it.  I'm always inspired when people go "AFTER" it!  They don't just sit and dream about it, but they MAKE IT HAPPEN!
