THE STORY:

I regret not starting this earlier, but recent experiences have reminded me that it's never too late to do some good. So, here goes nothing:

Very shortly, on April 10th, I will be running my first half marathon up in Scranton. This is my first time posting publicly about it because I'm both terrified and awed by this fact - less than a year ago running a mile was a serious feat for me. As some of you know, I also lost my grandmother about two months ago. Grandma Anne spent the last few years of her life in a constant battle with Alzheimer's. It was heartbreaking to watch this disease take away the amazingly strong woman who loved to swim, play tennis, and generally stay active. Watching her be stripped of what really made her herself was part of my inspiration to take advantage of being able-bodied and to take on this challenge. (Grandma Anne also loved to sing, but I promise you that nobody wants to watch me try and do that...) With that said, I've decided to use this race as an opportunity to fundraise for the Alzheimer's Association, an organization that tirelessly researches an end to this disease. 

There are infinite good causes to support, and in fact, the Scranton Half officially supports the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail development. However, this is a cause that is near and dear to me. So, if you want to help me feel courageous as I sprint to the finish after months of training and pushing myself, consider donating what you can. I'll consider it a birthday gift. :)

Thank you all!
