Another Run SLO weekend has passed and I can't help but feel an incredible sense of gratitude. The weather, attendance, support and opportunity to be surrounded by so many inspiring people was truly a gift.
Team Madonna Inn came together once again to push ourselves, cheer on each other and enjoy the 5K, half and full marathon festivities. Our very own Ted Sabatini, Head of Maintenance, ran the half marathon in honor of his cousin who suddenly and tragically passed away last week while training for another upcoming run. While it might have been easy to become paralyzed by such painful and depressing news, Ted decided that the best way to honor his cousin was to run the race in his memory. He reminded me that although the unpredictability of life can be scary, there is no force in the universe more powerful than love.
