THE STORY:

Dear family and friends...I hope this finds you well!

I'm writing to share a part of my journey for 2017. I've discovered a new passion for endurace sport and have set some challenges for myself over the next few months. Good friends of mine, Amanda and Yvon, have convinced me to sign up for a 50 mile endurance trail race. It's called "Rock the Ridge" and it takes place in the Mohonk Preserve in New York State on May 6th. Amanda and I have signed up as part of a 4 person relay team which means we'll be covering the first 25 miles of the race together. The other 25 miles will be covered by our 2 teammates from the U.S. Yvon being a seasoned endurance athlete will be covering the entire 50 mile distance on his own!

Rock The Ridge is a fundraiser. Rock The Ridge supports a great cause: preserving over 8,000 acres of the Shawangunk Mountains region. Why is a race like this important to me? The first reason is my love of the outdoors and a reminder to get out there and enjoy what you love to do. My second reason is never taking for granted the people who walk with you through life. The ones who understand you and never stop loving you for being you. Amanda, Yvon, and I met in South Korea 11 years ago where we formed an incredible friendship. I couldn't be luckier to compete in a race with these two by my side. 

This e-mail has gone out to a small collection of people in my life. Please know that you are a part of that walk through life that I am grateful for.
