So I found this article through one of my friends on facebook today, and it really struck a chord with me. This girl graduated from Yale last week, wrote this article several weeks ago for the graduation ceremony, and died last week in a car accident. After someone found this speech, it went viral, and has since inspired many readers. I feel for her family and friends and wish them the best. If you have 5 minutes today, please read this. What she said about her experience at Yale is so relateable. I feel the same way about my friends at college and I can’t imagine how they must feel after reading her speech. Sorry this isn’t really related to running… Although I think the running community is a strong one and I think a lot of people run to become a part of something larger than themselves. For instance, the marathon I’m running in this fall has 3000 participants! It will be so awesome to run with that many people and to experience something that significant together.
Anyways, happy tuesday!
