I love running, running has been something where I could just slap on some shoes, a shirt, and shorts and just go. About eight or nine years ago I joined a program called Students Run LA which helps high school students train for the Los Angeles City marathon. Prior to joining them I had never run a marathon but it was a personal goal to always run a marathon. My first marathon could not have been worse. I was beaten down by the heat, my feet were killing me, swollen and blistered but I finished and though exhausted I felt amazing. I was defintly hooked.
So why push myself to do more than 26.2 miles? Well I wondered that myself. It's crazy thinking about running 52.4 miles but its something that I'm craving to try and what better place to do it than San Francisco.
Runnig around the city I see the good and bad of it. Lately around the city I have been seeing a few families begging for money. Seeing the children next to their parents unaware of the situtaion their parents are in, just trying to get money for their next meal. This is why I chose MEND as my charity. They give to the community, they help the sick and poor. I'm hoping with this donation that WE can make a small difference for some of the struggling families around the city.
