I am someone that has used running for a lot of things...to get in shape, to mentally escape and blow off steam...to remind me that the world is much bigger than me. Now I am using it to raise awareness and bring attention to organizations that give people hope when they need it most. Several organizations have taken on significance in my life for different reasons...The American Cancer Society; The Alzheimer's Association; The Herren Project. Each of these organizations is equally deserving of support because of the good that they do every day. When I ran my first half marathon in December of 2015, when I crossed the finish line I said to myself...."I want to do this one every year!" So now I am running my second half marathon in the same place as last year, Rehoboth Beach, DE. I live in Pittsburgh, PA....so why Rehoboth Beach? I have always been drawn to the beach and Rehoboth has become a special place for me and my family. It gives me an excuse to get there during the off-season and enjoy the town in a completely different way. The course in Rehoboth is wonderful....it is flat, scenic and the overall energy and mood of the race is perfect! I hope that I get the opportunity to do it every year. The first year, I did it for me. Every year therafter, I am going to do it for someone else....this year, I have chosen The Herren Project.
