When the Going Gets Tough - Runners Support Each Other

Dear friends, I know my blog has been straying away from vegetarianism and things that I normally post about in this blog, but...this is perhaps the post important post I've ever written.

I'm a member of the East Side Striders - Lyndhurst, a running group based out of the Second Sole running store in Lyndhurst. We meet throughout the week for group runs, bar trivia, and all sorts of other fun activities. On Sunday, one of our long time group members, Bob Daley, collapsed on a group run at North Chagrin Reservation. He's currently in critical condition. Tomorrow night - 1/15/13 - the group is meeting at Hillcrest Hospital at 6:30 pm for a group run to show support for the Daley family. We're trying to get a big group together to not only show our love and support for the family - but to show what running is all about - camaraderie, togetherness, and supporting members of the running community when they're in need, whether we know them or not.

So whether you know me personally or not. Or whether you know Bob personally or not, if you're a Cleveland runner and would like to show your support for this great runner and family man, please join the Striders tomorrow night at 6:30 pm. If the tables were turned, I know I'd want the running community to show their support for my family.
