My 2017 started with the fitness resolution goal of running at least one half marathon every month this year either on the road or trail.
Why is the question many asked and it was not until I chose to run for the Flatwater Foundation that I had a reason.
In 2015 as my family and I suffered and grieved the passing of my grandmother at 93 years of age who had her own bought with kidney cancer I turned to the foundation for support. Their services kept me from falling apart along with the great support network of family members, friends and my better half along with her family who regularly motivated me to continue getting up each day.
There is not a run that passes where my grandmother does not cross my mind often when I want to stop because it's too hot, too cold, too many hills, the trail is too crowded, whatever the reason as my grandmother would say to me "run...baby...run".
