I'm a 42 year old mom of two teenagers who has NEVER competed in anything that has to do with running (except for Little Olympics in grade school--because you had to). But I've challenged myself, so here goes...This is Crazy!
If I'm going to dedicate a large chunk of my time to train and prepare for this event, I want it to count for something besides me meeting a personal goal. I want to truly REMEMBER April 19, 1995.
I was a senior at OSU. At 9:00am I was in the Presbyterian hospital in downtown OKC with my grandpa, who had undergone open heart surgery the day before. The building shook. A code black was called. The horror of it all quickly became real.
The OKC Memorial Museum is a remarkable place. A place to teach present and future generations. A place to grieve and mourn. A place to remember. Your donation will benefit the Musem.
So, This is Crazy! I'm learning about things like stride lengths, correct form, breathing and chafing...seriously, what have I got myself into?? Whether you are laughing at me, cheering me on, or wondering at which mile they will be scraping me off the pavement...donate. Let's make a difference and remember.
