Mike Knipp - In Memory of Glendy (Sweeney) ConnorWaterloo man gears up for 43-mile trek in friend's memory: Faith.Support.Strength.
Mike Knipp will need the same faith, support and strength to honor her.Knipp will embark on a 43-mile journey Friday morning --- one mile to celebrate every year of Connor's life.He'll cover the distance on foot, alternately running and walking until he reaches the finish line at the Friday'Loo event in Lincoln Park."I've tried to picture it several times over the last few months what it will be like," Knipp said."Reaching the finish line will be very emotional."Knipp and Connor were Columbus High School classmates and close friends.
"I went running one day, something I hadn't done for 20 years, and it came to me," Knipp said.It was an idea that required his own leap of faith, the support of others and the strength within himself to continue even when his body wanted to give up.
Knipp, 43, director of planned giving and major gifts at Cedar Valley United Way, began training in April.He hadn't run since high school and the farthest he'd ever run was 10 miles.Forty-three miles was a pretty tall order, so he looked to the experts for help.Enter Dana Foster, fitness coordinator{M3 at the University of Northern Iowa.She volunteered to train Knipp at no cost."At first I thought he was crazy, but when I found out why he wanted to do it I felt I could help him," Foster said."I remember that day," said Knipp."I had gone to church that morning and prayed for some kind of answers to how I'd get this thing done.When I opened up my e-mails, there was Dana saying she'd do this free of charge.I sat and cried."Others have offered support, also.Sarah and Scott Gall, owners of the Runner's Flat, hooked Knipp up with the right running shoes at a reduced cost, and the YMCA allows Knipp to cross-train there at no cost.
Knipp's training was on track until about three weeks ago when a calf injury sidelined him from running.He picked up the slack by swimming, bicycling and walking to maintain his fitness level.Monday was his first day back to running.As Friday draws nearer, Knipp grows nervous.But Foster's confidence in him is strong."There's a lot to mind over matter," she said."Your mind can double what your body can do.Mike's faith is so strong and his desire to do this is so strong there's no doubt in my mind he will complete it."Knipp will begin his journey Friday at 7:30 a.m. He'll complete the distance in 5-, 4-, and 3-mile walk/run increments.In the end, he'll have walked 20 miles and run 23.He'll have company every step of the way courtesy of a handful of family and friends who will join him at selected intervals.He'll eat and drink plenty along the way to maintain hydration and energy.At the finish line waits Knipp's classmates, the Columbus High School Class of 1981.They will gather at Friday'Loo for their 25-year reunion and cheer on Knipp as he runs into Lincoln Park.He expects to arrive around 6:30 p.m. "I'm going to need somebody to grab hold of me as soon as I finish," he said.
