Running is great for many reasons, but for Lori McLucas (Delaware) and Jim Huff (Charlotte, North Carolina) it’s all about the camaraderie. The two met at the YMCA in Delaware 15 years ago and began a long friendship thanks to the sport. “Jim was running at the YMCA by himself and I went up to him and asked if he wanted to join me and he did. We were running at 4:30 every morning.”
Five years ago, Jim ended up retiring and moved to North Carolina, while Lori stayed in Delaware. Despite the location differences, the two still get together at marathons like Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh.
