BENEFITING: LOST LAKE RUN
EVENT DATE: Aug 27, 2016
My life journey has taken me many places, both mentally and physically. As many of you know, part of my journey includes a goal to run half trail marathons or 25ks+ in every state across the United States. Included in this year's roster is a very special run, called "Lost Lake Run", which is in Alaska, http://lostlakerun.com/.
This race epitomizes much of what I love in life, as an advocate, an individual who loves to support local causes, and more than anything, admires deeply the ability to inspire others to think "BIG", and boldly.
Meet Marsha Vincent. The race that I am running was founded by a mother of four children, two of whom have Cystic Fibrosis. To say this race has grown over its inception is an understatement. It has evolved into a race that now sells out in mere minutes, is a race that has now filed for its own nonprofit status, and has raised over $2 million since it began.
To say Marsha thought big, and boldly...well, I think this race speaks for itself.
I love this.
How much did I know (personally) about Cystic Fibrosis before this race? Honestly, not much. You also may know little, or may know much. But what I love is that the dots became connected in such a way that I have now learned much more, (and if you are reading this, you may also), and appreciate more than anything, my ability to freely breathe the mountain air I live in, and never take it for granted, especially at altitude.

Whatever you can give financially, (if you choose to or can), thank you. Wherever your life journey takes you, may you breathe freely, and in great health. And may you think boldly, like Marsha, to inspire others to change our world, one small step at a time (and in this case, 16 miles worth of steps), and connect the dots to bring people together for a common cause.
