It was a beautiful morning in Leiper’s Fork, TN, perfect for the Heroes in Recovery 6K. Why a 6K and not the customary 5k? The extra distance is in recognition of the extra work one must do to remain in a life of recovery. I walked the hilly course and enjoyed every minute of it. This is my first race event of 2017, having set aside my fitness routine for the first eight months of the year. It felt great to get back out there.
