BENEFITING: American Heart Association
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
It's unfortunate that it is difficult to find a person who hasn't been impacted or known someone that has been impacted by heart disease or related problems. The disease may be common but as we move forward I hope that successful treatment will be just as common. This is why I choose to run for the American Heart Association.
I have participated in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in the past, and it was proud moment for me. It was a feeling of accomplishment, like I "beat" the race. I knew that I wanted to run it again, but was hesitating signing up. Being able to run for a charity was what gave me the push to make the committment. If I felt such a high from completing a small milestone, I can't imagine the type of high a someone feels getting a clean bill of health.
I appreciate any and all the support I have been getting/ continue to get as I embark on this journey (that's not a euphanism- I'm literally taking a journey through Pittsburgh) and cannot wait until race day.
