Hi! I'm Ali!
I LOVE running and so when I saw an opportunity to run the Chicago Marathon I could not resist. The decision was made even easier by knowing that my running was for a good cause. That was the easy part. The hard part is getting fit.... I haven't run long distance for more than two years and in that time my body has grown two little people (who are are now 10 months and almost 3). The harder part is raising the 1500USD I committed to when I signed up and the even harder part is raising USD when based in South Africa (a country with an ever-fluctuating currency).
Someone once said "There are a lot of things that come easy, but they're not necessarily worth it. Anything worth having, you work hard for". I am prepared to work hard for this. I will train as often as I can. I will use every spare moment to find ways to gain support for each mile I put in. I will enter this challenge wholeheartedly and hope that the result is worth everything I put in.
I promise that each dollar donated will be appreciated and used in a way that will really make a difference.
