BENEFITING: AMERICAN SPECIAL HOCKEY ASSOCIATION

EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2013

THE STORY:

I, Monica McAlister, have decided to run the Detroit International Half Marathon to raise money for the American Special Hockey Association (ASHA).

Created in 2000 for players with develop­mental disa­bilities, the Amer­ican Special Hockey Assoc­iation (ASHA) gives people of all ages and abilities a chance to learn and grow by playing hockey. There are currently over 50 ASHA programs in more than 30 cities through­out the United States. 

I am looking for others that wish to join me and run other legs of the Marathon including the full marathon, the US half, the 5K and the 5 person relay to help being awareness of ASHA and raise money for them.

 

UPDATE 12 August 2013

Finished week two of my final 12-week training program for the International Half Marathon.  I shaved 7 minutes off of my 4-mile run (last Sunday to yesterday).

 

UODATE 24 July 2013

This coming Monday starts the 12 Week count down to the Detroit Marathon! I have my final 12-week training program ready to go!  Nerves are setting in now.

UPDATE 21 Jan 2013

Was in a car accident this morning.  My car hit black ice on the freeway and spun out.  Hit the guard rail twice.  It could have been much worse.  I am okay, bumps, bruses, sprains, and concussion but I didn't break anything and I am alive.  My car on the other hand is totaled.   Not allowed to workout right now :(

UPDATE 16 Jan 2013

My In Training shirt came in the mail today.  Still a ways out yet but getting excited!

 

UPDATE 1 Jan 2013

2:00 a.m. now registered for the International Half Marathon!

 

UPDATE: 31 Dec 2012

After tearing a muscle last week I did the 2012 New Years Resolution Run in Downtown Flint in 49 minutes. Not great; but not bad all things considered.  Came in 5th for my division; 102nd overall.  Happy New Year!
