Here's my story... I have these "friends" that are always trying to talk/bully me into crazy things (in quotes, as we may not be friends after this crazy race kills me-I'm looking at you, Christine!?). Curiosity got the best of me so I decided to check out the website. This race allows you to fundraise for charity, specifically the American Cancer Society. Cancer hits home for me. My husband and I both lost grandfathers to the disease-mine just 3 years ago. My uncle is currently battling. I had a little scare myself. So it's time to get active-both physically and by raising some money for the folks who are leading the fight. I will not come in first place. Let's be honest...I probably won't finish in the first half. But I will finish. More importantly, every dollar donated to ACS is a baby step forward in finding a cure...and that's a HUGE win!
