Finishing Is Everything

UPDATED! April 25, 2010

Team Run On! Gets It Done! We finished the marathon relay! Big Cheers to Brenda, James, Lee, and Dawn for great individual runs. It was a beautiful spring day in Oklahoma City with sun and winds from the northwest (rather than the south) which made for a more enjoyable finish. I was glad to have the wind at my back running down Classen and Broadway. -- Jonathan

On April 25, 2010, less than 1 week away, Team Run On! will be running a marathon relay at the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. The 10th annual "run to remember" and fund-raising event.

Team Run On! celebrates life by running for the moment. As a relay team, we are accomplishing more than what we could currently do as individuals. Where in the past (and future) we may be concerned with setting personal records, this time it is much simpler: we are here for the moment. Our times may be relative, but finishing is everything.

CHEERS! to Team Run ON! and to all the participants in this year's OKC Marathon. I am proud to be running with you. Hope to see you all at the finish!

-- Jonathan
