To Jim2

While I never knew him, I learned so much from his wisdom.

Jim Fortner (aka Jim2) was an inspiration to many who participate in the Runner’s World forums. He was an incredibly knowleadgeable and passionate advocate for our sport, and always shared extremely helpful advice in a non-threatening way that made newcomers to the community, like me, feel incredibly welcome.

I’ll definitely miss Jim’s wisdom. Fortunately, he’s left a wonderful legacy of writing on the internet for future generation of runners.

Jim, I dedicate my upcoming marathon to you. Your posts have helped me achieve more than you will ever realize.
