Join #MEGSMILES on Saturday, January 18

Join Meg's Miles this Saturday, January 18. "You don't have to be a runner. You can walk. Any distance. Anywhere in the world. Share with your friends. Let's continue to create awareness for drinking/texting while driving. Share the road with runners and cyclists. Lookout for one another. Always. #megsmiles" ~ Brooke Roney

From Meg's Miles Event Page on Facebook:

"Meg Cross Menzies was tragically killed by a drunk driver while out for her morning run on January 13, 2014. As an avid runner, member of the Richmond Road Runners Club, and Boston marathoner, she was a member of the running family nationwide. In her honor, our hope is to raise awareness of drunk driving, texting and driving, and overall safety of runners and cyclists everywhere.

"This Saturday, January 18, 2014, no matter what your distance, run for Meg. Take in the fresh air, be aware of your surroundings, keep your headphones on low, feel the heaviness in your lungs, the soreness in your legs, and be grateful for it--for all of it. The sweat, the pain, the wind, the cold…everything. Be grateful for that moment.

"Feel free to post pictures of yourself with the hashtag #megsmiles. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. Let all runners unite together and remember the loss of a beautiful spirit. It's not a coincidence the hashtag reads either "Meg's Miles" or "Meg Smiles." She will be smiling on all of us forevermore."
