The 2012 Robert and Linda Mathis Memorial Run

I wasn't able to make the hopefully-first-of-many Mathis memorial fun runs last weekend thanks to a stomach virus. Peter Lubber's did a fantastic job chronicling a great day put on by Jennifer Lee Dicus, Aaron Summerhays, and many others. Be sure to check out his story., complete with words and memories shared by Race Directors and runners alike. You can also still donate to the Robert and Linda Mathis Foundation, where proceeds go to families surviving DUI accidents.

I did swing by and post a makeshift memorial at the spot where they were last seen alive in Incline Village, NV. It says, "Make Your Life An Inspired Journey. Today, hundreds of runners celebrated your lives on the trails you shared with open hearts. We miss you."

And we do miss you both.
