What running 6.2 miles taught me about running 6.2 miles...

I finished the 10k at the Fifth Third River Bank Run on Saturday after 6 months of training including rivers of sweat, buckets of tears, and  See more

THE STORY:

Hi! I'm Kara, and if such a category existed, I would have been voted "Least Likely to Run Even if Someone were Chasing Me" in high school. So, why have I spent the last three months learning how to move a a pace faster than a sloping shuffle? Because I love dogs and cats. Because I believe that only when people change their habits, priorities, and philosophy, will things change for animals. 

I spend a lot of time talking about the importance of spaying, neutering, and improving the commitments we make to the animals in our care. I talk about healthy pets literally all the time. I also talk about how we can't change our pets welfare without changing our own. So there it is, healthy pets + healthy people, and I'm locked  into my running shoes by my own beliefs.

But I need help. Keep me accountable. Help me feel not only my burning calf muscles, but also, that these many hours are making a concrete difference for animals in my community. Please donate.

Community Spay Neuter Initiative Partnership C-Snip wrote -

We considered countless names for our Fifth Third River Bank Run racers. But whether you call us "The CSNIP Surge(ry)" or the "Ball Chasers", the important thing is that you choose to be a part of this crazy group of animal advocates. By joining Team C-SNIP as a runner, you're joining a team that does 10,000 plus spay and neuter surgeries a year. You're joining a team that has contributed to a 63% reduction in shelter euthanasia in the state of Michigan over the last seven years. And by running and raising funds with us, every step you take means less homeless puppies and kittens on the streets. If you support a runner in the Surge or a Ball Chaser, thank you. You're helping to make those steps count for dogs and cats who can't speak for themselves. You're making change on a massive scale.
