I just felt like runnin'

Full story: Lowell Sun

One of my favorite scenes from the Tom Hanks classic Forrest Gump is when the title character answers a barrage of questions about why he keeps running back and forth across America.

Now a link to some local running events for public participation would have been a plus!

You cut in on a charity run and didn't even kick in an entry fee? And you freely admit it in the paper? You're a donkey.

Wow, can't make anyone happy, huh? The two comments above me are quite snippy.

Anyways, I'm a former teammate of your girls at Brandeis and I have to say I absolutely love them! They are just fantastic human beings.

I'm so glad they got you into running! Welcome to the club. And I'm sure Paul doesn't mind, he loves new runners like the rest of us.

Good luck with the rest of your training!

Just because you like his "girls" doesn't make it ok to cut in on a charity event without contributing. The comment wasn't snippy and didn't strike me as making someone happy or not...it called it like it is...donkey.

The John Carson race was one of the first races I had run and like the writer I was not in the best of shape but enjoyed doing this with my boy's 14 and 15 (I think at the time). Our oldest is now doing triathlons and our youngest is a city walker (doesn't drive much) I hope that we as parents were a good influence on there decision to get out and move.

Great article!

Mr. Garrison, you really need to settle down. I think number would have gone to waste, and it's pretty clear that he is doing free advertising for the race by writing a feature article about it in the paper. And having four daughters run it every year? That's a pretty solid annual donation.

No need to call anyone a donkey. I have a worse word for you, though, if you'd like to hear it, but since I have class I won't write it here...
