The Complete Running Network is promoting the Ryan Shay Memorial Run for tomorrow, November 17th. Shay was the U.S. elite marathoner who tragically died during the olympic men’s trials two weeks ago Saturday. There is no formal organization to this run. The concept is simple – dedicate your Saturday (or Sunday) run to Ryan’s memory by commenting on the CRN post HERE and let others know you have done so. Ryan died at the 5.5 mile mark, so that is the suggested distance but it is obviously the thought that counts and any distance will do.
I will be returning to my main training route, which happens to be almost exactly 5.5 miles.
