Run Now Relay | Cleveland,TN to Boston, MA

Run Now Relay | Cleveland,TN to Boston, MA

Nothing like opening up the Chicago Tribune and seeing some of our photography of the Run Now Relay Team! Here’s the article! NASHVILLE (Reuters) – For many first-time marathoners, the idea of covering 26.2 miles on foot is a daunting one. That distance is a jog around the block compared with what a group of Tennessee runners will undertake next month when they set off on a 1,075-mile relay to Boston, where they plan to deliver more than $50,000 in donations to charities that help victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The plan for 26 runners to run that distance in continuous, alternating 6-mile shifts was the brainchild of Matt Ryerson, head of the Cleveland, Tennessee, branch of the United Way charity. The idea started to grow on him during a run with friends the day after the April 15, 2013 attack, which killed three people and injured 264. “Our whole run we talked about how we felt about what happened,” said Ryerson, 42. “It was a personal experience for all us. Running events are usually such good-natured, good-spirited events.” Members of the Cleveland Half Warriors running club – whose name is a play on its members’ preferred distance of 13.1 mile half marathons – plan to set out from their hometown about 30 miles northeast of Chattanooga on April 12. Accompanied by support vehicles, that will provide runners with a place to rest between relay legs and shuttle them to hotels and meals, the group plans to spend eight days on the road, passing through major cities including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York along the way before arriving in Boston on April 20, the day before this year’s marathon. At the end of their road, they plan to present checks totaling at least $50,000 to Boston’s One Step Ahead Foundation, which is helping children who lost limbs when the pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs went off at the finish line last year, as well as Dream Big, a Boston-based charity that provides equipment and funds that enable girls from low-income families to participate in sports. The run, which invites comparisons to the cross-country jaunt undertaken by the hero of the 1994 Academy Award-winning film “Forrest Gump”, will get off to a tough start, along roads through the Appalachian Mountains. “That will be pretty taxing on the body,” said Ryerson, one of five members of the group who plan to run the Boston Marathon when they arrive. The most miles in the group will go to personal trainer Johnny Clemons, who plans to run 26.2 miles each day of the relay in addition to the elite Boston race. Clemons, who last ran the Boston Marathon in 2006, said he is looking forward to returning. “What happened last year makes you mad and makes you want to go out and help,” he said.

Megan + Jake | Engagement Photography

How they met (this is kind of funny): We actually met on Facebook! (SO cheesy, I know.) We first began talking on Christmas Day 2010!  We just casually hung out as good friends, and I figured that’s all we would ever be.  In March, he asked me on a double date with a guy he worked with and my best friend. We ended up at Hooters (which we still laugh about to this day because that’s just not a “first date” place).  After the dinner, I came home and told my parents I would never go out with him again, and we would be nothing but friends.  After that night, Jake and I didn’t talk to each other until the night of the tornados (April 27, 2011), and I just felt like I needed to make sure he was ok.  After that, we would talk occasionally but nothing serious.  In June, my debit card was stolen, and in order to get my money back, I had to file a police report, so guess who I called?  Jake agreed to meet with me, and as soon as I saw him, something was different! A couple of days later, he showed up at my work , and we just had simple conversation!  When I got home from work, I told my mother that I would marry him!  A year and half later, here we are!!!  Read more about their story in the and see more engagement photography in the Pink Bride...
