Our own amazing hip came up with the idea to honor the memory of Ryan Shay, who died at mile 5.5 of the U.S. Olympic Trials on Saturday, Nov. 3.
Jeff's idea is this: On Saturday, Nov. 17, we all dedicate 5.5 miles of our runs to Ryan's memory. Completerunning.com is publicizing this (virtual) event, along with Steve Runner in podcast #122.
If you plan to participate, please leave a comment over at CRN. We hope this effort will give some small measure of comfort to the Shay family.
