Shared from http://enduringwarrior.org/about/the-masked-athlete-team/ The Masked Athlete Team (MAT) are specially trained...

Signal over Murphy Insurance

Gingerbread man signal over Nationwide Insurance
We were out and about in Southern Pines, and saw this Gingerbread Man "signal" over Mike Murphy's Nationwide Insurance office. It looks like someone must need help! Sponsor Murphy Insurance is of course a resource for that, but what do you think the signal is all about?

Reindeer at the Sly Fox

Sly Fox Reindeer at Phone Booth
We just received a photo someone took while running past The Sly Fox last night. It appears to be our reindeer about to go into the old English phone booth. Interesting. The Sly Fox has been a sponsor for years, so it is no wonder the reindeer is visiting, but we wonder what he's going to do in the phone booth? Call Santa? I guess we will have to wait and see...

Anne’s Reindeer Fun Run Story

I decided to take a shot at the 75-79 age group record in the 12k run, “The 12Ks of Christmas” on December 6, 2014 because it looked like a really fun event, with those in costumes making it feel festive and lively. I took a big chance on this one because I’m running the Dallas Marathon the following Sunday, December 14, with my son David and my Granddaughter Rachel, which will be our 9th three-ma...

Scott’s Reindeer Fun Run Story

As I submitted my registration for the Reindeer Fun Run, I thought back over the past year, and how much things have changed for me since the 2013 Reindeer Fun Run. Compared to the obstacles and challenges that others have shared, my story seems rather trivial. But running has changed my life, so I’ll share that story here. In September of 2013, I decided, on a whim, to start running, and to en...
