On October 13, 2013 I will be running the Long Beach Marathon as my second Marathon this year. My first was the San Diego Rock and Roll. I began training in January of this year when I returned home to CA to reconnect with the hobby I always loved most in high school. Getting back into the sport has changed my life and significantly improved it. Part of my current training involves running with my local high school again, helping to coach and encourage younger runners to develop a similar passion for the sport.
Now, for my second marathon, I am trying to fundraise and give back to a non-profit like Up and Running set up to support others who have also been affected by the economy the last few years. Running is such an amazing sport, one that others should experience if it could have the same positive impact on their lives!
Up and Running Again is an agent for changing lives. We seek to bring hope to the hopeless and strength to the weak through the relationships, achievements, and discipline of a group running program.
If you are interested in being a part of this race by contributing even a small amount, I am convinced you will impact someone elses life in a positive way.
Thank you for your support!
