Reverb Day SIx: Fellowship

Fellowship: What community has engaged you most this year and what did you get out of participation?

No brainer here, this is primarily a running blog, so it is course my trail running community.

I specfiy "trail running" versus just running community because there is a difference between the two-ie, road runners vs trail runners.  Which is worth a future blog post in itself!

What did I get out of participation?

Support-people waiting around makeshift aid station tables in a crushing wind, around a campfire at Reverse Ring

Friendship-Slim accompanying me during some scary breathing episodes in both February and July of this year

Smiles-seeing people smile when they have come into aid stations that I have worked in both Ohio and PA

Pride-sharing trail with Mark Carroll as he completed his tenth Mohican 100 finish;  being at the finish line and being so happy and proud to see Roy, Jim, Cam, Bill, Kerry, Doug, Deb, all finish Hardrock and kiss the rock for their finish

  1. Friends are the best. Sometimes I forget how big of a part of running they are.
