As part of this relationship I made the commitment to run the Chicago Marathon in October. But rather than simply sign up to run the marathon I decided to run the marathon by sponsoring a non profit. I am running for "Girls on the Run" a non profit that focuses on teaching girls about setting lofty goals and how to reach them.
It is not lost on me that less than a year ago I was only able to run 3 miles without stopping. I am now hoping to coach Girls on the Run, not necessarily to teach girls about running but to teach them that what they might think is unachievable isn't unachievable at all. It just takes hard work and dedication. I NEVER would have guessed that I would be able to run a marathon but in two short months I will be doing just that. Not to mention I have never raised $1500 before.
So, I am asking for your support. If you could donate to my cause it will show the girls that anything is possible.
