THE STORY:

Running has never been easy for me. I have always thought the people I saw running must be crazy...especially all of my friends who have completed marathons! When my friend (and Ride:Well teammate) Jay died last year, I decided that I would do something "crazy" when I was 30 (Jay turned 30 when we were cyclying accross the U.S. - somewhere in Tennessee). He loved encouraging friends to push themselves physically. Everything he did had a purpose and was for a greater cause. In fact, he organized a 5k in his hometown to raise money for an organiztion he cared greatly about. The 5k occurred only a week or so before he passed away.

What better way to honor Jay and celebrate a new decade of life, then by running the Chicago Marathon for a good cause!?

With that in mind, I've teamed up with some people from Old St. Pat's to raise money for the Crossroads campgaign!

Crossroads raises funds for non-profits to assist Chicago's at-risk youth, homeless and unemployed with targeted programs, resources and service initiatives. Organizations include Harmony Hope and Healing, Horizons for Youth and Career Transitions Center.

I hope you are able to help out :) If finances are tight, then even an encouraging email would mean the world to me. I'm struggling to get out of bed for early morning runs and the miles are quickly elevating into my longest-ever runs! The saying "it takes a village" has taken on a bigger meaning for me. Running a marathon isn't as much of an individual sport as I initially thought :)
