Giving Thanks

Loving what we do here at HMF makes for a big list of things to be thankful for.  I am fortunate to be surrounded by so many incredible people and inspiring experiences.

To name a few…

I am thankful for…the Capital Prep Magnet School Boys Cross Country Team, named Class S State Champions!
Capital Prep boys XC team - Class S State Champions!
I have known these kids since they were in 8th grade.  They are now seniors and they are remarkable young men - talented, smart, articulate and promising.  Not to mention really great runners! They provide me an appreciation and reminder of the best of what the sport of running gives back to us all.  Credit goes to their coach, “W”, who wears his love and faith for each of them on his sleeve.

I am thankful for…the HMF staff, what an extraordinary group!  Josh Miller, Matt Anderson, Danielle Alt, Kim Neurath, Jill Hallet, Genevieve Lattimer, Diane DiBerardino, Tom Hutchinson, Ellen Smith, Lisa Butler, Sarah Roberson, and Shari Maglio.  (With special thanks to Ken Shluger.)

I am thankful for…great volunteers and an amazing Marathon Collar Crew! We could not do what we do at events and behind the scenes without the efforts of each and every one of them.

I am thankful for…the Manchester Road Race!  Being able to continue my streak of 40 consecutive Manchesters mean so much.  I hope to see many of you out there!

Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving, full of reflection and appreciation for the people and experiences you are thankful for.
