Remembering 9/11

I watched the 2 hour recap on NBC last night. It brought back all the emotions.

I had an idea, that may sound silly and trivial and self-centered, but I thought you runners may like it.

Sunday I will run 9.11 miles. I thought I would aim for 9:11 per mile pace as well, but I don't know if I can do that, as it is hard for me to slow down that much. That would involve sacrifice...

Pause for irony to sink in.

Maybe I can focus on slowing down enough and spend the 84 minutes thinking about the 2,973 people who passed that day, and how lucky I am. That's about one person for every two seconds of my run. Dang.
