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
