I registered to run the 1/2 marathon (13 miles) back in January. I have been terrified ever since. However, this is something that I have always wanted to do, but never mustered up the courage to follow through. Until NOW! In addition to my personal goal of completion, I will also run for charity, specifically for the Autism Connection of Pittsburgh. This foundation pours it heart and soul into encouraging the creative expression of indiviuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They are the backbone of support and advocacy for so many local families facing a diagnosis on the autism spectum. My goal is to raise $400. The race is this coming Sunday. To be perfectly honest, I have been so scared of failure that I haven't wanted my friends and family to know of my race plans for fear that I won't be able to finish. I don't know what the outcome will be on Sunday, however, I have 1 goal in mind... Run for the Autism Society and give back to a community that has touched my life so deeply.
Thank you so much for your support. Liz
