I started running at the age of nine! My first race was at an annual 4th of July 5K and Fun Run in Mifflinburg, PA that my aunt did every year! I did a helf mile race and the first place prize was a McDonalds gift card! As a granola kid - only allowed to buy sugar and junk food with hard earned allowance - I sprinted my heart out - trailing behind 2 sprite boys only to be beat by a cute little gal with a perfect ponytail and a mom that had crushed in the 5K - training ;)
Running has been a consistant part of my life from that point on. My 2 cousins were runners and my Aunt Molly and Uncle Dave were a constant source of motivation - I would run with my aunt regularly - a 5K down to the swimming hole on the back roads. Beautiful, rural Pennsylvania past the Amish neighbors, often with a dog or two in tow.
This is my first fundraiser for running - I've assisted with lots of fundraisers and participated in many runs but am excited to combine the two for a great and effective cause! Move for Hunger!
