My fundraiser says it all!! This half-marathon I will run in remembrance of my Dad..."FOR THOSE I LOVE-I WILL SACRIFICE"!!
My dad was so very proud to know THAT I was reaching my set goals...that is after he overcame the fear of me injuring myself. Not a day went by that he didnt call and ask...did you run today and how far. I find myself waiting for a call to answer his question with excitement, unfortunately that call will never come through again. On June 12, 2013 I lost my Dad as well as my motivation to run or anything else for that matter. After two shorts months I have decided to do and hope to do exactly what he would expect of me.....BACK IN SELF-TRAINING I AM!!!
October 12th I will celebrate my Dads birthday by doing something for myself (as he always told me to do)...I WILL RUN...I WILL SACRIFICE FOR THOSE I LOVE-
