I am running the 2014 Chicago Marathon for Restoration Ministries, an organization dedicated to helping people overcome addictions and to providing services and opportunities for at-risk and underprivileged teens and children. Since I began running in 2011, I have completed numerous races. This, however, will be my first time as part of a fundraising team. This is long overdue. I took a complete hiatus from running from October 2013 through April 2014 to recover from achilles tendinitis in my left ankle. I will be training for this race while also going through physical therapy. Being unable to run for so many months has given me a desire to do something more significant with my running that simply finishing another race. I chose Restoration Ministries because a few people that I know and love have had their lives transformed by very similiar organizations. Please visit their website for more information about their work and please contribute what you can if you feel compelled. The funds raised to directly to the charity and not to my race expenses.
