I am not sure what I just got myself into but I have committed to running in the 2015 Detroit Marathon. Having only ran a few 5k's in the past, I am taking a leap of faith and running my 1st half marathon..yikes! I will be running for the Akha House of Light Orphanage in Thailand. After hearing their testimonies, I will remember each one of them everytime I put on my shoes to run. When it gets hard and seems impossible, I will remember their faces, their strength, their courage to keep pushing forward. Running is my very small part to raise awareness, food, clothing, education, and shelter for these children. NO child should ever have to endure what these kids have.
