Maan Dela Cruz
During my first snowboarding trip, I took one run down the bunny slope and realized I should’ve learned how to stop first. But even as I screamed down the “mountain,” I became hooked and set out to become a decent, if not Olympics-bound, snowboarder. After two seasons and too many falls to count, mission accomplished!
Snowboarding taught me that with commitment, perseverance, and the company of supportive friends, I can achieve anything. So this year, I've decided to take on running the NYC Marathon. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with running. I enjoy running (most of the time) but I’m not fond of the shin splints that turn my runs into walks. This marathon will be my first, so I hope to channel the determination I had in mastering snowboarding to get me through 26.2 miles on November 6th.
I'll be running about 400 hundred miles over the next several months and expect you to donate $1 per mile to help me raise money for Stoked. No? Okay, for all of my training, maybe a few dollars then? Please consider making a donation and thanks for your support. Remember, even a few dollars will go a long way. (Plus it's tax deductible and you’ll feel good inside.)
Thank you, in advance, for your support and donation!
