Meg’s Miles

Meg's Miles | A Mother's Pace

Saturday I joined thousands all over the world and ran for Meg. I ran for her husband, her three small children, and her friends and family who lost her too early to a drunk driver.

I ran from my house and out of my neighborhood. Anytime I do this I have to run on a narrow street that doesn’t have a shoulder. I HATE running on this street but unless I drive to a different location and park before running I have no other option on a long run. As every car passed me on this short road (about a quarter mile) I thought of Meg.

I thought of how sad it is that she was doing something that she loved when something so horrible happened. 

But I did also take the time to be grateful for the moment I was in. To enjoy my surroundings and enjoy doing one of my favorite things, running.

I finished 7 miles for Meg on Saturday. But that’s not the last time I’ll run for her. She’ll be in my thoughts often as I hit the road to log my miles.

    NIce week!!! I have to admit that I stayed away from a lot of the info on the run for her…i don't know why but I felt like it was too intense emotionally for me. Eik hope that makes sense, it probably sounds awful.

      I can understand how it would be too much and it doesn't sound awful at all. It was a horrible situation and one I could relate to all too well because of her 3 small children. :(

    I thought of Meg as I ran this Saturday. So sad..

    I have a Nike+ watch too and I've been hearing people say that the miles are often inaccurate, which is a bit troubling to me! How could it have been so far off?!

      Hi Janelle,

      My Nike watch is always very accurate on the actual mileage of each run. A couple of times I've noticed that when they add my mileage for the week or my average pace that their addition is wrong for some reason. All the individual miles up on the graph were correct just not the total for the week. I've had pretty good luck with the Nike watch and their customer service is the best.

      Have you had good luck with your watch? Do you notice the mileage being off at all?

      Thanks for visiting!!
