Run For Respect 2017

It is that time of year again…….time to put out the word to end the word…….time to bring awareness to the fact that our handicapped, be it mentally or physically need to be treated with the respect they deserve. My alma mater….Pontiac Township HIgh School in Pontiac Illinois hosts a 5k Run every Spring and for the past few years, those of us who live far away are able to take part……We run, we mark our time and we take some pictures…

This year I chose to share with all of you my “home” path…the path I run when I just want to put on the running shoes and run out my house door! This path is great….it is aong the water…..goes through the woods and is exactly 5K!

I hope you enjoy the pictures!…. Shout out to Laura, the force behind this all! She does an amazing job!

My run begins my running through a patch of woods right accross the street from my home

 

along the Teltow Canal

Tired but happy shoes…… It is always an honor to take part in the Virtual Run for Respect…..one year I truly hope to get to be in Pontiac and be a part of the special day!
