Phinishing in Philly

Philadelphia occasionally hosts nice sporting events.

Somewhere between Halladay vs. Niese and Lee vs. Young, the Mets-Phillies pitching dynamic from last weekend was all Tug, as in Team McGraw member and Faith and Fear reader Sharon Chapman finishing her latest race, the Broad Street Run, while sporting the FAFIF wristband. Sharon has run at both ends of the New Jersey Turnpike to raise money and awareness for the Tug McGraw Foundation, a Team McGraw effort with which we’ve been happy and proud to assist, albeit from a sitting (and sometimes drinking) position.

Congratulations to Sharon on another race put in the books, and thanks for one more showing of the best wrist running.

    Sitting, drinking or writing, your amazin’ support has been invaluable to me during my training and racing. Having the Faith and Fear Nation behind me helped make the impossible possible for me, and I am forever grateful to everyone here for the encouragement, motivation and inspiration you have given to me.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you are the best blog sponsor a runner could ever want. A huge thank you to everyone who helped me honor Tug’s memory in such a fitting way.

    Ya Gotta Believe!
