    @katharmonic Nice pictures and a nice place for a walk/run. Stella looks like she is enjoying it too. Nice swag.

    @hanlonsk Love the picture of Sundance Mountain. Nice that you saw the deer. Funny that you interrupted "nature." :lol:

    @Tramboman that is a great idea! I make a playlist for every run and my playlist today is very depressing and I honestly don’t think I can stand to run like that for long, lol. I’ll get to work on that stat!

    Thanks for sharing @Camaramandy648 . I hope knowing that so many people cared will help his family in some small way. Good luck with your ultra today - and, yes, I think you should make a peppier playlist for the run.

    Also, I'm all for a challenge for the week of the Boston Marathon. I was thinking just trying to run 26.2 miles during the week - not all at once, for sure. I'm not ready for that.

    Thanks for sharing Kristi's reply @Camaramandy648 And you should definitely play some upbeat music for your ultra. I like @Tramboman idea of running to celebrate his living not his passing. Today is a rest day for me, but I plan to run for him tomorrow.

    I also love @HonuNui idea of the Boston Marathon week challenge. And I think running 26.2 miles that week is a great idea @quilteryoyo for thise of us who aren't marathon marathon runners. I've run a few Halfs, but I am not a Marathon runner and if I tried to run one a little over a week from now I would only injure myself and that would not be a good way to honor his memory. But I could do 26.2 in a week.

    @Camaramandy648 thanks for sharing your post and Kristi's reply. They were both touching and heartbreaking.
    Good luck today on your Ultra! I know Vincent will be running beside you the whole way.
    Very good idea about running a marathon during Boston Marathon week. I'm in for that for sure!

    I’m in for the marathon week in Pastor Vincent’s honour. Am also resting today but tomorrow’s long run will be with him in mind.

    Thanks for sharing his wife’s message @Camaramandy648.

    Hang in there everyone, keep running x

    @Camaramandy648 The link for the funeral isn't working. Are you able to get it?
