I feel it would be safe to say that many, if not all of us, here at Fly Feet have found running to not only be a way to stay healthy and fit but a way to stay in touch with our amazing community and live with true intention. With this in mind, I wanted to share an event coming up in September that was created in support and memory of those who’ve touched our community in ways we didn’t know were possible and lived every day with true intention.
On the evening of June 24, 2016, David Forster, an elite marathon runner collapsed and passed away suddenly while on a training run at the age of 27. I knew him as a friend, and the fiancé of my dear cousin, Abby. I will never forget watching Dave sprint past while running Grandma’s Marathon 2015 in Duluth, MN coming in 77th place overall; and then the following year cheering for him and Abby, while he supported her in her first full marathon by running alongside her the entire the way – this is how I remember Dave – supportive, loving, kind, patient, competitive.
Finish the Run was inspired by Dave but it’s for ALL those who are finishing the run for someone. Finish the Run is a 5k run/walk Sunday, September 10 at 11:00 am at Boom Island Park in NE Minneapolis. There will be music, food, prizes, and most importantly – an amazing community of people who are striving to live, love, and run with intention every single day.
Hope to see you there!
