Hey Coach,

I don't know anything about life to conjure up something that makes sense to you in this situation. So, I'll do what I can do best - my next run will be in the memory of your brother.

I hope you take solace in the fact that the lesson your brother taught you - you taught me. And I believe that he's not only watching you run, but his spirit runs with all the people you coach(as much as he admitted to hate it)

Yours lovingly,

A normie-turned-athlete who was nothing before you touched his life

Hi Coach,

After surviving a huge medical crisis last year my running resumed again from rock bottom. Last Saturday I felt tired and cranky and eventually summoned up enough energy to get out the door. I put on your next long run and was immediately transported back to those Farm Team days. Ha! Gotta love that! You got me through those 5 miles and a bit more. Thank you!

Also, lost my younger sister to breast cancer back in 2012. It’s hard day each year that it comes around. It’s important to honor their legacy and the impact on our lives. You captured the very essence of this in your post. Awesome!

Thank you!

Steve

I don’t think it ever gets easier, every anniversary is tough. Hope you can raise a glass to your brother after your run tonight.

I understand how you feel in some ways, Coach. My eldest brother, David, died 10 years ago. He was nearly 15 years older than me and he was my hero as I grew up. He loved music and loved me enough to allow me to use his record player when I was old enough - very trusting!! He was the person who teased me the most and also loved me the most. I was proud to have him as my brother.
