Day 21 – 613 miles ran…and almost home!

Laguna Beach -> San Onofre -> Oceanside Harbor

Richard says most this run has been very spiritual for him. He thinks a lot about Emilio and ENF’s patients. Other times, he listens to his body and adjusts his form and/or breathing. He is running through San Clemente right now!












Third to last day. See what Richard has to say about who he is running for…  Richard’s Inspiration

Richard’s friends and San Diego Track Club members Bob, Nena and Mark joined him for the run through Camp Pendleton finishing at Oceanside Harbor around 5, 530pm! He was greeted by family and friends in Oceanside! Thanks everyone for coming out.

Day 19 – 550 miles ran…and still counting!

Alamitos Bay -> Huntington Beach -> Orange

During his morning run through Sunset Beach, Richard heard someone on their bikes say, “that’s the guy!” Yes it is!!! We are so proud of you Richard!












Steve, our logistics king, mapped out Richards entire route and is running this afternoon with Richard! A huge thank you Steve for EVERYTHING he has done for Richards Run / ENF.

Rincon Mountain -> Oak View -> Mandalay Beach

Here he goes…an uphill, slow, 800 feet climb toward Ojai.

Ever wonder what Richard’s view is? What he sees? What he hears? Check out his view at the top of the Ojai mountain, looking out at Lake Casitas – heading downhill this morning!! Runners are supposed to look 10-20 feet ahead of them: Richard’s View













Richard just finished his first 15 miles of the day and is getting knee-deep in the ocean! The ocean water feels amazing on his legs!!













For the second 15 miles, we are following Richard’s steps.  See what it feels like to be running next to Richard: Richard Running
