THE STORY:

I am excited to share with my friends and family that I am officially participating in my first marathon!   I have a lot of emotions about running 26.2 miles however, I am going to work effortlessly to train and prepare for the marathon.  I was never a runner and a few years ago met a great group of girls from my local spin class. With their support and encourgagement I started to run a few miles at a time.  A year ago I particpated in my first half marathon with the goal of some day running a full. I never thought I would ever be able to run one mile let alone 26.2.   Challenge accepted! I would be grateful if you would consider financially supporting this wonder organization of Girls on the Run that I am raising funds for.  I have a goal of $1,000 so let's do this!

Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 that uses the power of running to inspire girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program combines training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants. More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. All funds raised by the Girls on the Run SoleMates Team go to underwrite program scholarships so that any girl can participate in this life-changing programing, regardless of her family's ability to pay the program fee.
