An explanation, of sorts . . .
I would pick a place, almost always, a very busy place. My car would be parked in as predominant of a place as possible. Here is a picture of the car.
That’s the color of shirt I always wore. I smiled, exchanged pleasantries and continued on. I didn’t attempt to be near the car, but many folks, seeing the car, and me, connected the dots and we chatted. Many cards and bracelets were given out to folks that expressed an interest in the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 helpline phone number. Here is a partial list of these runs . . .
- Great Smoky Mtn. National Park
- Monument Valley, Utah
- Mojave National Preserve at Goffs, California
- Arches National Park near Moab, Utah
- Kasha – Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico
- Petroglyph National Monument, near Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Garden of the Gods, near Colorado Springs, Colorado
- Waterton Canyon, in Colorado
- Pikes Peak, near Colorado Springs, Colorado
- Leadville, Colorado
- The Flatirons at Boulder, Colorado
There were probably more. If some come to mind, they will be added!
Here are a few miscellaneous pictures from some of the runs . . .
Most of these runs were under 10 miles.
