Yes, I’m running 26.2 miles for the Central Park Conservancy, and am building up toward the big event every day. Just 3 months ago I couldn’t even run 3 miles without stopping constantly. But our fearless team leader, Esi Eggleston-Bracey, shared some helpful pointers, apps to use, a training plan, and constant motivation … and this past Sunday, I ran 16 miles in about 4 hours (don’t judge), and I couldn’t even believe it.
I’ve learned so much about personal commitment, tunnel vision, and having a plan. I’m grateful for our JOY Works team (Esi and Teneshia), and am looking forward to completing the 26.2 miles on November 5th. But I need your help!
I will be running for the Central Park Conservancy, the organizatoin that takes care of Central Park in NYC. Here in DC, I run the Capital Crescent Trail on Sundays from Bethesda to Capital Hill, and have an enhanced appreciation of the beauty and wonder of nature, the parks, and the people who keep them beautiful. Running for hours is so much better when there is nature and beauty all around!
I’d love your support to help me complete my goal! Anything you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Your thoughts and prayers are also welcome as we show that living (and running) with “JOY” really works!
With positive energy and JOY,
