EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2013
I have devoted nearly the last 5 months of my life in order to accomplish one goal - complete a marathon (ok, and maybe beat my big brother's time). I have run in the early mornings, the late nights, through a war and an epic winter storm and now, the marathon I was scheduled to run has been cancelled.
I know that in the grand scheme of things, this is *not* a tragedy. I get it. But, I'd still like to accomplish my goal and the next best option is an upcoming race in Greece.
I can run it. I have trained for this. But I need to get there, get a roof over my head and have the funds to eat. My boss has donated the days off from work.... but I still need help covering the costs of the rest.
Training for a marathon requires a "can-do" attitude and perseverence. So, I'm not giving up... I'm gonna' try this, just like I tried running a marathon.
