THE STORY:

      Five years ago, my friend and coworker, Kristen Kullberg, started the Sacred Heart Jogging Club. I joined her 3 years ago. Each year, we challenge a group of 7th and 8th grade students at our school to train with us for a 5K.  For most, this is their first time ever running. For all, it is their first time running 3.1 miles!

    Over the past 5 years, the SHS jogging club has run various 5Ks in DC ranging from "Race for the Cure" to the "Save the Capital Cresent Trail run". We've loved the variety of big races and small, local races. This year, our students voted to attempt the "Run or Dye" 5K. It is similar to the very popular Color Runs.

      Kristen and I debated if this was right for our group and we decided it was! Despite the registration fee, we think it will be an amazing and memorable experience for our kids. We hope that they start to understand that running can be fun! We also hope that they learn, like we have, that you really can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

      Without letting the money hold us back, we've decided to go ahead and attempt this race. While the kids keep training, Kristen and I are going to furiously attempt to raise the money to cover the registration costs for the kids. If you, or anyone you know of, would like to sponsor a runner, please donate to this page! The cost for one runner is $45. We have 16 runners this year!  Therefore, we're going to need a lot of money! :)  Any money that is raised over our goal, will go towards next year's 5K!

One day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama. And that's what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going. 4 years ago
