Why We Run – John (JMT-Chi)
Marathon Men: John Nannenhorn and Jack Marston training and finishing four marathons together (circa 1997-2001). Not everyone ran marathons back in the day … so this was a big deal. The 20+ year old newspaper clipping is yellowing; yet, it seems like yesterday when these two coordinated their weekends around training for marathons. John was faster than Jack; Jack loved the challenge. Jack had the enouraging words; John loved the push. They were a great team and great friends.
John is again running … this time with a pair of angel wings to help him push through those tough spots and a voice in his ear telling him to keep going up that hill! Jack will be with him “every step of the way” as John trains and runs for Jack’s Team.
