RUN103
Ages ago, under an old handle, on another blog, I declared a run103 mission: after my grandfather passed at age 103, I decided to run one race for every epic year of his life. Some of the races are frivolous and fun, others a long hard toil that take much hard work to get through, but together, all are representative of this beautiful ebb and flow we call life.

Mission declared on: 09.10.12
Current count: 41 of 103
