Hi All, Happy & Healthy 2017!!!
Stepping up and commiting to run the Big Sur Marathon, for a great cause, Children of Peru Foundation (http://www.childrenofperu.org), one of Big Sur International Marathon's trusted partners for charity.. I am so excited and motivated to help promote this awesome non-profit.
When looking for inspiration to run my second marathon i was hoping for a greater cause and Children of Peru was found!
Several years ago traveling through Peru I was in awe of its natural beauty, majestic landscapes and vibrant culture. Visiting Machu Pichu, one of the worlds spirtual epicenters you could say it changed my life. But just outside the rich beauty and culture there was undeniable scarcity. I remember seeing the slums just oustide the city of Lima and thinking how anyone could live in such an enviroment, many children left obviously homeless. Not only did this give me perspective on the harsh reality of developing countries but just how much we have to be thankful for with such basic human needs, our access to health & education and having a solid roof over our heads.
So, fast forward to now- I feel this opporuntiy has found me (or I've finally found it!) and I am ready to run!! With limited training time & Big Surs rugged course, my goal is purely for spreading health & to fundraise for children in need of this beautiful country.
Thank you so much for your time and energy in reading this if you've made it through ; ). If you feel compelled to help in anyway, it is greatly appreciated in my journey and far beyond!
