Family Camp Out 2010 Recap: The Run

by This is Carrie on July 21, 2010

My sister, who began the tradition of “The Run”, all alone, many years ago, hasn’t been able to participate in the tradition the past few years because of a knee injury.  But this year, on the cusp of possible knee replacement surgery, she threw caution to the wind and ran it “one last time”,  finishing the 9+ mile run to cheers from the family and a hot breakfast prepared by Dad (Grandpa).

I can still remember her first solo run many years ago and how proud I was to see run into camp that Saturday morning exclaiming “I made it Dad.” That perserverance has serverd well over the years. I think it runs strong in the family. This year there were over a dozen that made the 9 mile up-hill challenge, some for the first time. And Yes, “they all made it”. …. It’s the “waiting breakfast” that motivates.
