I would like to dedicate tonight's 5.21 mile training run to the beloved memory of Ritchie DeNune. He passed away eight years ago today, but the memory he left behind makes it feel just like yesterday. I remember him sitting across from me during study hall in Junior High...like it was yesterday. I was very saddened to learn of his passing when I heard about it. I send my deepest thoughts and prayers out to all of his family and friends tonight as you remember the amazing man he was. Thank you Nikki for allowing me to run and honor Ritchie...your best friend. Please share this post, and your most cherished memories of Ritchie in the comments below for all to see. God bless.
