I miss it. From waking up at 4 a.m. on race day to the rush of adrenaline that you experience when the green flag drops; lord do I miss it.
I miss asking my wife for song suggestions for a pulse-thumping playlist two days before the race. I miss the butterflies and anxiety that you experience while lying in bed the night prior to the gun going off. And yes, I even miss the tightness in my left thigh that caught me off guard at the nine-mile mark. This past Saturday marked my half-marathon debut, and I miss every knee-jarring, sweat-producing, calf-burning, runners-high-producing second of it.

This weekend we’re hosting the Run for Rhodes #Anywhere5K race as part of National Cancer Control Month.
We want to remember those we have lost to cancer, support those fighting this disease, and recommit to progressing toward effective cancer control.
In particular, we’d like to honor Dustin Rhodes.
To show your support and prepare yourself for the big day all you need to do is register for the race and print your Run For Rhodes #Anywhere5K bib.
The 5k as a race is not really a new concept. The 5k has been around for ages. It’s just a unit of measurement. A span of about 3.1 miles going from point A to point B. The beauty of #Anywhere5K is that it celebrates running at its very core.
The whole reason we all enjoy the sport isn’t because of the desire to finish on the podium or to add another race number to the pile.
We enjoy running because of the experiences it brings us.
