BENEFITING: DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
ORGANIZER: DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
As some of you may know, I have been training for the Providence Marathon in May. I can't do this by myself, which is why I signed up to be on the Dreamfar High School Marathon Club. As part of this commitment, I am also challenged to raise $262 (for 26.2 miles) for Dreamfar. The money raised will help Dreamfar provide runners like me with the resources we need to accomplish our goals.
So why do I dreamfar?
Dreamfar has provided me with the supportive community I need. It has given me a new circle of friends and a great group of mentors who have helped me when things (whether it's running, school, or friends) get hard. Dreamfar has taught me a lot about commitment. I signed up for this challenge in October and I have been training ever since. Believe me, there have been many Saturday mornings where I've woken up for a 16 mile run and wanted to quit, but being on this team gives me the motivation to keep going. On Dreamfar, it doesn't matter whether you're slow or fast - all that matters it that you finish. Every time I run now, I feel a sense of accomplishment because I know that I am getting one step closer to my ultimate goal - the marathon.
And lastly, being on Dreamfar has made me enjoy running, which is always a plus when you're training for a marathon! ;)
Any donation (even a dollar!) would be greatly appreciated.
