The Wounded Warrior Project 8K series came to Franklin, and I had to participate in honor of those who continue to serve and those who've sacrificed even more. I was terribly sick, so I took it easy, but it was a great fall day for a run. They kicked off a Soldier Ride bicycle group, had a great live band, and even provided a photo booth so you can have a souvenir.
I was a great course with a few Tennessee hills (of course), plenty of water points, and a good group of supporters along the way. Lots of signs on the course too! I ran in honor of my friend from West Point, Sal Corma, who died in Afghanistan in 2010. He was one of the best guys... and you should read more about him.
If this series comes to you, you need to check it out! They're in Phoenix next month.
