My All Souls Day Run: Remembering and Praying for Those Who Have "Finished the Race"

"I have competed well; I have finished the race. I kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7) St. Paul wrote these words at the close of his life as a testimony to the accomplishment of his mission in life. It is also a fitting tribute to our loved ones who have done their work here on earth and have gone before us.

I love you so much.
On November 2nd, All Souls Day, we remember those who are no longer with us. To honor the memories of  our dearly departed, I am praying and running one mile for each name of your loved one you send to me. Please list for me their names (or initials) and your relation to them (family or friend) and send them to me by posting it here in the comments box, on, or via email to

No list is too short or too long; I shall run and pray for them all. I shall keep the memories of your loved ones sacred in my heart as I run and pray for them starting on October 29th up to November 2nd.

May I request that if you are so inspired, to share or repost this on your page to your family or friends so I can pray for them as well. Thank you and God bless!
