Run 4 Adoption
Team Member: Jaci Loween
I am running to bring teammates into this "race" of raising support for our adoption. Running looks like an individual sport, until you experience the power of running on a team. This is true with many things in life, we can try to face our "races" on our own or we can invite people to be on our team and experience the joy of running alongside one another. So I am running in an effort to create a tangible team of support. People who will make pledges that will motivate me to keep my pace. And people who will run their own race, asking their "teammates" to support their every mile.
This race is also an attempt at a bucket list item for me (why not knock down 3 in one, right?). 7 years ago I qualified for the Boston Marathon but didn't have the opportunity to go. Since then my attempts to qualify have been met with disappointment. Thus, this race will be for me an attempt at reaching the goal of a BQ. To do so requires me to keep my average mile pace within 10 seconds of 8 minutes miles.
Sponsorship Goal: Find 10 teammates willing to pledge $5 for every mile I run within my pace range goal. This would bring $1,300 for our adoption!
