This will be my second year running with the Cottonwood Runners raising funds for Grateful Hearts.
If you would of asked me just a few years ago if I ever planned on training for a half marathon, I would of laugh and told you no, I would never.. all you do is run.. BORING!
Well I can tell you training for a half marathon is ANYTHING but boring! Through my runs, I talk with God about my day and His plan in my life, I pray for loved ones and receive amazing clarity.
Besides the physical benefits from running I have been blessed with a stronger relationship with my Heavenly Father. He is with me every step of the way! Especially that first mile, oh that one is usually the hardest.
With all that said, I am running to help raise funds for Grateful Heart, which is an wonderful organization which helps those in need by providing food and necessary clothing and household needs.
Last year Cottonwood Runners raised over 90,000 for Grateful Heart and this year we intend to raise $100,000.
Each mile we run whether it is during the 16 weeks of training leading up to the Marathon or during the Long Beach Marathon, we will be running to help the hurt.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me !
Thank you in advance for your contribution to Grateful Hearts!
