Hey Party People!!
Erika with a K (aka E-Diesel) here asking you for your support in helping me achieve my goals for the 2013 Boston Marathon. As most of you know, I am a sprinter/short distance runner and have overcome some health obstacles recently so a race like this is a challenge in itself. However, those of you ALSO know I am one mentally tough mother trucker and won't let anything stand in my way! Running is my version of therapy.
Needless to say I am ready to crush pavement for a good cause and have fun while doing it! Won't you help me GET AFTER IT?
Please read below to learn more about the charity that is sponsoring me and feel free to give whatever you can as I appreciate every dime. Helping others that are less fortunate with their health and wellness is a no-brainer for me. Don't forget there will be rewards in the forms of high-fives, butt slaps, hugs, and cupcakes!
"Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it."
