THE LONGWINDED VERSION: (want a story? my reason why? Here it is.)
Well, let's be honest. I have NO IDEA what I have just signed up for but I needed a challenge/goal to keep me moving forward. I saw a friend on FB post how she was doing the tough mudder and I thought to myself...should I do that too? I haven't been on a run for a few years now. I did a "pretty muddy" run, but that was 5 years ago. At that time, I didn't know anyone. I had just moved to the RVA area, and thought this would be a good place to start. Then life happened. It's interesting. I'm standing here in a full circle. Starting a new chapter in my life. It's going to be tough! But, I know I will get thru it. Just like, I will get thru this tough mudder course and push myself to a whole another/different level. Well, enough about me....
With that being said, I don't just run just to run for me but, .....
I run for a cause.
Diabetes runs in my family.
When I was younger my brother got junivial diabetes. He was twelve at the time. He was so angry at the world because it "Just Happened" No one in our family had it. NO ONE!! He was the first. I saw how difficult it was for our whole family to change everything! (activites, eating habits, cooking, taking/giving shots etc.)
As time went on we lost touch with each other. But something brought us back together.
My dad has onset diabetes. (Type 2) At this point in our lives....I think we have come full circle again. Now, as a family we have grown closer toghter because of the diabetes. My brother has it and now my dad. And to be honest, my fear is that I will get diabetes too! (since it runs in our family)
So, I'm running for a cause...
American Diabetes Association.
My goal is to raise $500!!!
All I'm asking for is ten dollars. Yup. just $10 from everyone I know. If you want to donate more your are more than welcome too!! But all I would like is $10.
Thank you, Thank you for your time and support!
