It’s Year Two. Cotton Runnerversary.
Halloween 2007, Kim & I with 5 kids between us.
Trick or Treating
“Hey, wanna run?”
I’m like, sure. How hard could it be?
We start training that week.
9 weeks, and we had our first 5K
and pancakes and hamburgers after
because we deserved it, after all.
seriously. we only burned 300 calories.
but, the effort.

That’s not the half of it.
The most important parts of the training runs:
The therapy before and after.
Because, after all. Anyone can run.
We think this is our hill:
It takes someone special to be a partner.
To be at your door rain or shine.
To run quietly next to you while you cry, to cover you when you need a facility, to make you laugh.
Funniest Schwag: Groceries.
To be a partner takes real commitment.
