The other night I was on the phone with my dad and started a story with, "I was talking to Coll and I think I'm going to sign up for this race." He stopped me right there to point out that that's how every race idea starts.
I have to say that it is beyond true. I have let that girl talk me into 5k's, half marathons, a full marathon, a tough mudder...you see where this is going. There is ALWAYS the option to run for a charity but I never have. Quite honestly, I don't the exact reason because, like my dad pointed out, I'm going to do it anyway.
I learned about this race from Coll and it is a wildly simple concept: I run a 10k and it feeds 10 kids in my city. Why wouldn't I do that? I didn't have a good answer either so here we are. Any amount would be much appreciated and go a long way for a great cause.
Thanks so much!
