We run to remember. That’s the theme. That’s the thought. I’ve had this race on my list for a while, this Bataan, Joplin, and Marshall University are the only memorial marathons I’m familiar with. As often as we do these things it can be easy to just bang another one out without much thought. But these races demand we spare a thought for these people. It’s not about my time, the medal, or anything else. If you want those details I’ll gladly share, later. Today is about the people of OKC their generousity (so many locals cheering from their lawn). If you’re one of my running friends and you haven’t done this race, do it; I know I’ll be back. Fun fact: Oklahoma City, also known as the Big Friendly, is home to America’s only skeleton museum, the Museum of Osteology, with over 300 skeletons on display.
