BENEFITING: Mohonk Preserve, Inc.
EVENT: 2016 Rock the Ridge 50
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016
Thank you for your support. I'm lucky enough to live at the base of the preserve and like to think of the property as my back yard. This year's race is a bit personal for me. My husband suffered a severe injury 2 years ago and during that time I shut off all my interests and became his personal caregiver. This was not a wise decision on my part and my mental/physical health declined. 2016 is off to a much better start. My husband is improving and I'm back on the trails running and biking, enjoying the exercise, solitude and the woods. Looking back I now realize that the preserve should have been part of my game plan to combat the stress and to clear my mind. I never realized how much I missed it until I set foot on the trail to Duck Pond this winter. So much for hindsight.........
