The view from my porch

FROM MARTY (thank you thank you thank you!)

I’m a distance runner.

I’ve been training to keep going, even when it’s hard.

When it hurts. When it sucks. When I don’t want to.

I LOOK PAST IT.

Relentless forward progress to the finish.

Call it what you want: stubbornness, endurance, determination, guts.

DEEP DOWN,

I DON’T KNOW HOW TO GIVE UP.

(…and it’s always worth it in the end)

Good luck to Fred “Doom” Dummar and Ivan Castro at the marathon des sables! Fred and Ivan, retired Army Special Forces officers, are past runners and always supporter of the Run for the Red Marathon. Ivan was blinded in action and Fred is his DEAR friend and guide! These two have a friendship, a bond, like few others. Picture attached (I hope!)

I did a quick look at the event list and there are close to 30 USA entries of the close to 1000 member field.

The event has begun…
