Growing up, running was not my favorite. I actually decided to not go out to the cross country team my sophmore year because it meant I had to run three miles, not one....that seemed just dreadful. And here I am today, with such a fun task ahead! 26.2 miles (that's about 10 times more than what I used to think was impossible in high school!) But if I've learned anything from running, it's that a person will surprise themselves with what they are capable of doing! Like anything, little by little, with support, encouragement, and lots of fun runs through Boston's streets.....somewhere along the way, running did become my favorite. I've participated in five full marathons, a couple half marathons with a best time of 3:20 in the Boston Marathon. But that was all 10 years ago. But I'm up for the challenge again!
One of the great things I think in the world is when I see people doing great things to make a difference in creative, fun ways. That is part of what has drawn me to move to Central PA, that and God told me too:) to be a part of Joshua House. As part of Joshua House, I have been able to assist in making wellness and health a priority in Central Pennsylvania (a place where you can sometime see more people drinking Mountain Dew than running the streets). We've established a Race Wellness Series with 3 races of our own and partner with 2 other area races. This is our newest project and has the potential to raise $10,000 for Joshua House while having a lot of fun! Thank you so much for considering being a part of this project!
I haven't yet decided if I will stop drinking coffee, shave my head, or pledge to do 100 pushups a day until I have met my goal.....any suggestions? I'm open:)
