TOMORROW IS SEPTEMBER 11, 2016. It’s the 15th anniversary of the World Trade Center terrorist attack that changed life for most in the US. Since that day there have been other attacks throughout the world resulting in many deaths and heart-rending personal loss for survivors and families. After such attacks the people of the involved countries have been joined in their grief and resolve to stand up to evil by the wider international community. Thus the date is different in these other sites of violence but the remembrance is similar.
The EarnedRuns Honor Series memorializes those lost in this and other attacks. The first portion is the 11K RACE TO REMEMBER 9/11. 2015 was the INAUGURAL RACE of the Series. The second portion of the series is the 7K PEARL HARBOR REMEMBRANCE DAY RACE which will be run on December 7, 2016.
There are too many organized memorial races to provide a complete list, so below find a portion of what’s out there this upcoming weekend, starting today, September 10 and 11; some are later in September as well. If you won’t have the opportunity to participate formally, consider using your EarnedRuns bibs, or just taking a quiet run or walk, of any distance, alone or with family or friends.

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
