Evans High School sophomore Justin Weegar doesn’t run because of inner demons, but he does run with an angel on his shoulder.
Weegar’s mother, Misty, was murdered Aug. 11, 2010, when Weegar was in middle school, and her memory has been a driving force behind his running.
“My sister and I say that she gives me angel wings when I run,” said Weegar. “That’s why I go so fast, I guess.”
His father said while that memory may motivate Justin, he in turn inspires the rest of the family.
