Turning 40 in October got me motivated to conquer a lifelong dream (and fear) of running in a marathon. Decided to run the Dubai Marathon on January 25th of 2013. Then the training began. My family and friends have been encouraging me every step of the way. It has been an amazing journey so far. As the miles have increased my desire to run for a cause has as well. Our church youth group, that Ashley and Sydney are both a part of, has been raising money to build real homes for impoverished families in Peru. Last year, they were able to raise enough money to build 11 homes ($22,000). My hope and prayer is to be able to raise as much as possible for this cause! Help me Run4RealHomes!
