Back to Blogging and #MEGSMILES

It has been a while since I last posted ... I had to rest, reset, enjoy my family and ALL the dang snow days!!! 

I just wanted to reach out to everyone and the running community about Meg Cross Menzies.  She was an avid runner, Boston Marathoner, Mom to 3 small children and member of the Richmond Roadrunners Club.  Meg was tragically struck and killed by a drunk driver during her morning run on January 13, 2014.  This truly breaks my heart for her and her family.  She was out doing something that she loves and to have her life taken away by some careless person ( who happens to be a 47 yr old Doctor ) is awful!

So this Saturday, January 18, 2014, if you are able to run please dedicate your miles to Meg Menzies!  If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook tag your pictures or post with #megsmiles.  Here is the link to the Meg's Miles Facebook page.  Please,  help raise awareness for drunk driving, cell phone use/texting and driving, and all over safety for runners and cyclist!

My thoughts and prayers go out to Meg's family.
