Flying with Owen

I have the privilege for running for a magical little boy named Owen. We we matched by an amazing site that matches people with mobility with those who are not blessed that way. It gives my running a whole new purpose. I have dedicate miles to people before, but now every time I hit the pavement I am 'carrying' someone with me. It makes the excuses disappear or at least I don't say them aloud.

Each time I run I get to tell Owen how far we went and where we ran. I pay more attention to the details around me so that I can report back to him. Owen gets to 'run' though me and I am very honored.

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
