BENEFITING: CELEBRATE LIFE HALF MARATHON
EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2017
I run for many reasons. For the fresh air, the health, the pride for myself when I climb that mountain. But today, and each day striding forward, I run for my best friend. My friend, who was an angel at heart and loved unconditionally with the most incredible smile and joyous laugh. My friend, who always encouraged an adventurous and inspiring nature. My friend, who was instrumental in raising a wonderful family built on the most sincere kindness . My friend, who would always put the needs of loved ones first, despite her own challenges. My friend, who was beautiful, inside and out. My friend who lost a battle to pancreatic cancer just days ago, but won a chance to protect and guide us from above. My friend, who is undoubtedly enjoying a wonderful chocolate treat, as I put one foot in front of the other to carry on her spirit. I run for Terry, a truly amazing friend who embraced the need to celebrate life.
