Running – Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute

My Martin Luther King Jr Run

As a tribute to the struggle for human rights, I decided to go for a long run (and struggle myself!). The weather was beautiful, with a bit of snow still covering the ground. I ran for just under 7 miles, at a fairly decent pace. I came back home covered in sweat, but happy knowing I fended off a day of lethargy!

This training run also marks the start of my training to do the Rim to Rim of the Grand Canyon. I have made reservations for a campsite on the North end and plan to run on May 22nd. I will need to run over 20 miles, and survive greater than 10,000 feet of elevation change in one day.
