So, instead of posting about who he was and how I knew him, I wanted to post about one of the ways we remember him in my family. We run in the Army 10 Miler. This is an annual race held in Washington, D.C. and the race is this Sunday. It is inspiring, emotional, and one of the most special things I get to do. Jeff and his wife, Jenna ran in the Army 10 Miler while they were in college. And in his memory we run.
We run to raise money for his scholarship fund at our high school.
We run and are inspired by the soldiers that run with one leg.
We run, as Jeff said, to "Stay Strong, Stay Low, and Kick Ass!"
We run to remember him.
I won't be able to run this weekend but my family will be. And even though I will be at a conference supporting my husband, I will be thinking about my family, The Kaylors, and most of all you Jeff.
