Why I Run

I run and race for lots of reasons. For this weekend, I race to remember the 168 people, adults and children, who were tragically and senselessly killed 15 years ago this week. Please scroll down and read the race founder's letter to understand why I run.

From the letter by Thomas A. Hill: 

You tell us about crossing the finish line and knowing that you can do whatever you set your mind to. You tell us that you see life differently.....
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is a Run to Remember, but it is also about Celebrating Life and Reaching for the Future.
The goal for this weekend's marathon, number eight, is to remember, to honor, and to see life differently.
