I greatly appreciate everyones contribution to such a great cause. I'm excited to run my first 5K with a purpose. Wish me luck! Ebony See more
I used to say, "running is NOT my thing, I don't run, and what about my hair." I've come to the conclusion that all of those were simply EXCUSES. Never in a million years did I think I'd be running my first 5K, but never in a million years could you have told me that while sitting in my homeroom class at Monroney Jr. High School, I and so many Oklahomans would have to come to grips with terrorism right in our front yard. That reason alone is enough for me to RUN. Run for the babies, run for the Mommy's who didn't make it home that day to kiss and hug their little ones or significant other, run for the Daddy's who's kids looked for him to come through the door, run for the Grandparents who couldn't spoil their grandkids with a love like no other, and run to show those evil spirited people around the world just what resilience Oklahomans possess. We are one of a kind, so for that this Black Girl RUNS!! Please support my journey at bettering self and giving back to those who touched my heart so many years ago. I appreciate you in advance and love you for honoring their memory with me.
