For an animal lover, the passion for helping animals and protecting them from harm is innate, it's not something you learn or that you can be indifferent to. For those of you that have a pet in your life I do not need to explain the warm fuzzy effect that our furry family members have on us. Those puppy eyes or sweet kitty purrs will turn you instantly into a puddle of love even on the worst monday after a long day at the office.

But not everyone out there is as kind and caring as you. There are those out there that treat animals inhumanely and think that our furry friends do not have feelings, that they cannot feel pain or love, and that they deserve to be treated poorly.

Just like you, I have always loved animals and have always WANTED to do something more than just "feel bad" for these helpless animals. I thought to myself, I am just one ordinary person, I cannot make a difference. I am nothing special, I am not a celebrity or a genius, or a model, a comedian, or an OIympic athlete. I have never done anything of true importance and have never led the charge for any cause or put myself on the firing line for negative nancys that judge for taking a risk. I have certainly never run a half marathon nor ever trained for anything remotely close to such a distance.

I want to help these abused and neglected animals and I want to prove all that have mocked me or doubted me wrong - that I can do something I put my mind to. I want to (for once in my life)defy ordinary every day and follow my heart...

Therefore, on January 11, 2014 I will be running in the 2014 Walt Disney World Half Marathon as a member of Team ASPCA, a national fundraising and marathon training program. I am excited to be participating as a member of Team ASPCA and honored to be raising the awareness and the much needed funding to support the ASPCA's programs.

For all of you with animals, I hope you understand how important it is for these animals to be loved and cared for! Please help by sponsoring me so that I can run in this race by making a tax deductable donation to the ASPCA on my fundraising page.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping to fight animal cruelty, homelessness and neglect and on a personal level thank you so much for believing in me.
