Run Dedication for Blakely J. Eckert

I have the true honor of dedicating today's 5.07 mile training run to the beloved memory of SMSgt. Blakely J. Eckert. He passed by the way of suicide on June 16, 2017, and is loved and missed more and more with each passing day! Born on September 15, 1984...Blake left us way too only 32 years old! The world was blessed to have him as long as we did. Blake was a true American hero and a mentor to many as he served our great country in the United States Air Force. He always had a positive demeanor about himself that spoke hope into the hearts of all that knew him. He is remembered as funny, caring, loving, and he brightened every room he ever entered. We will continue to carry his contagious smile with us forever. I send my deepest thoughts and prayers out to all of his family and friends. Thank you Michael for affording me this amazing opportunity today of running in honor of your best friend...I pray I did his memory justice today. Please share this post with others...and comment below with your fondest memory of Blake's beautiful life in the comments section below. God bless.
