At the beginning of August I was given the opportunity to write an article for Endurance Magazine. I love writing, so I naturally jumped at the opportunity. What I didn’t know was that I would be interviewing an inspiring young man who was going to run 240 miles from the Pentagon to Ground Zero in remembrance of the individuals and the families affected by the tragic events of 9/11. Starting today, he will be leaving the Pentagon to begin his journey. Whether you are an endurance athlete or not, I strongly encourage you to read this article. Not just because I wrote it, but because I think this is a cause worth supporting. Jeremy Boyd has put a lot of time, thought and energy into preparing for this, and that is just the beginning, he still has to run 240 miles. All the funds that he raises from this event go to two different non-profit organizations that are somehow connected with 9/11.
If you are interested in learning more about the cause, I encourage you to visit his website: http://runtoneverforget.org/
I also encourage you to read the story. It is extremely inspiring and a testament to the many ways you can show support for the families who were impacted by the tragedy of 9/11: Endurance Magazine. You can pick up your own copy at many of the running and cycling stores around the Triangle and in other parts of North Carolina.
