I’ve been running marathons since 1979. In every last one of them I’ve always had a goal; one that continued raising the bar higher and higher. Finish. Break three-and-a-half hours. Run through the wall. Break three hours. Qualify for Boston. Set a personal best. Set another personal best … and another.

Phil Brown Remembered at Memorial 5K

Image of Phil.jpg The Duke Energy Hines Energy Complex in Bartow, Florida, was a moving sea of runners and walkers wearing green tee shirts on the morning of April 1.

Each week, my husband, Phil, started his workweek at Duke by wearing a green, two-button polo shirt. This was not a work-related requirement – simply a personal tradition that Phil had started a few years ago. Perhaps he wanted to see who was awake enough to notice the trend. Maybe he felt that green would be a lucky Irish start to each workweek.

The reverberation from the Irish bagpipes that were played at Phil’s funeral on March 6, was a resonating reminder of Phil’s strong Irish roots. Service attendees wore running shoes in Phil’s honor, and the men in Phil’s family, wore green shirts.
