Meg’s Miles

20 Jan

I think the running community is one of the most supportive communities I have been a part of.

Yesterday I ran 4 miles for someone who couldn’t.

4 miles for Meg today. #megsmiles

Meg Cross Menzies was tragically killed by a drunk driver while out for her morning run on January 13, 2014. As an avid runner, member of the Richmond Road Runners Club, and Boston marathoner, she was a member of the running family nationwide. In her honor, our hope is to raise awareness of drunk driving, texting and driving, and overall safety of runners and cyclists everywhere. (from the Facebook page)

Yesterday I ran those four miles for Meg, and if you want to get involved feel free to take a look at the facebook page. Even though the “official” day was on Saturday, any miles that you want to run/walk/swim/bike in her memory, I’m sure would be appreciated.  Don’t forget to log your miles in the google form linked from the facebook page.

Run for someone who can’t.

    I think the response to Meg’s death has been amazing. If every single person that ran a mile for Meg spoke out for stronger drunk driving laws…we’d see a huge change in the situation shortly!
