Welcome to my 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race Page!
This August I will be running the 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race on the Gray Nation Endurance team in support of the National Brain Tumor Society.
This won't be my first Falmouth Road Race (in fact, it will be my 12th overall and 2nd virtual at-home edition) but it will be my first time running for Team Gray Nation and I will be running this year in memory of my uncle, Larry C Keating, Jr. My plan is to complete my virtual at-home edition sometime between August 7-14.
Uncle Larry was diagnosed in October of 2020 with a glioblastoma tumor. He was treated by the fantastic team at Duke's Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center but after a hard fought battle that included surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy we lost him this past May, just a few weeks short of his 77th birthday.
Before retiring in 2019, Uncle Larry spent more than 50 years working in intercollegiate athletics. He cared passionately about his teams and the student athletes that he coached and served in his administrative roles. A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, and mentor to many, his influence and accomplishments stretch further than the hall of fame inductions and accolades that he received over the course of his career and lifetime. He lived his life with humor and grace, focusing on doing what was right, taking care of others when he could, and not focusing getting the credit just getting the job done. He was model for how we all should spend our time together while we have it.
The meaning behind the miles in this race and the training for it are important for many reasons. It is my chance to honor a man who meant so much to me and many others and a chance to help the National Brain Tumor Society conquer and cure brain tumors - once and for all.
If you are able to, I hope you will consider making a donation to support. And certainly if you are unable to donate yourself, but would be willing to pass my page along to your networks or others that might be able to make a gift I would be forever grateful.
Thank you and let's go!
