THE STORY:

Hello everyone!  I will be participating in the New Orleans Jazz Half Marathon on Halloween day this fall.  Running a half marathon has been one of my goals for over a year now.  Beginning as someone who hated running and could hardly run one mile without dying, running has now become not only a way for me to stay in shape but also to prove to myself that the mind and body can work together and achieve amazing things.

I will be running these 13.1 miles for children with cancer.  The money raised through this fundraiser will go to the Children's Hospital to care for its oncology and hematology patients as they fight for their lives.  

While running, I'm always in a mental battle with myself.  "Should I stop?"..."I'm in so much pain, I can't go on any longer..."  But the mind is powerful, and through positive thoughts anything is possible.  I am running this half marathon for the children who might never be able to, and to show that its never worth quitting and giving up.
