Run for the Fallen Has Completed!


If you have been listening to Phedip lately, you will know about this event that completed today.

Run for the Fallen is a group of folks who have been running across the country since Mid-June to run 1 mile for each fallen soldier in Afghanistan or Iraq - just over 4000 miles.

I started a Runner Plus challenge along the same lines.

And I am proud to announce that our challenge 55 runners ran 8637 miles for the fallen.

God Bless the men and women who are defending our freedom and God Bless their families. May we never forget the sacrifice they have made!

I love any run and any group who has a goal to support and honor our troops. I am a bit biased since I spent my entire life as a child in the home of a military father. Great idea. Even better blog. Thanks for all of your support lately....much appreciated.
