I have the amazing honor of dedicating today's 8.38 mile training run to the cherished memory of Brandon Michael Conner. He passed by the way of suicide in December of 2016, but his life will continue to live on in our hearts forever. We choose to remember all the good he brought to this world. Brandon shared a zest for life that was unmatched. The people who were closest to him can truly appreciate the uniqueness of his life and personality. We shall never forget the funny and silly moments…like how he would break out into free style raps at random times. Please join me in sending our deepest thoughts and prayers out to all of his family and friends today…especially to his beautiful son. Please accept my run as a very small token of condolence. Thank you Todd for allowing me the special opportunity of remembering your beloved son…I am honored. Mental illness may have impacted his life, but it will never define who he truly was! Please share this post, and your most cherished memory of Brandon's life in the comments below. God bless.
