Ryan Shay Tribute Run

I've been reading about this on several blogs the last couple days, and I think it's a great idea so I'm passing it along:

Join the Complete Running Network and dedicate your own 5.5 mile run next Saturday, November 17th in memory of Ryan. Run the exact distance, or dedicate a 5.5 mile portion of a longer run in his memory.

Click here for a very touching article on Ryan's sudden death at the Olympic Trials last weekend and the effect it has had on his family, his hometown, the running community, and beyond.

Tragic circumstance. My next 5.5 run will be for Shay. He was a true champion.
