My thoughts while running today were centered on community. With the marathon 17 days away, I'm feeling good about finishing! It's becoming increasingly scary and important to me, as amazing donations pour into the USO from people that believe in me.
Community is a powerful thing, and encouragement is a form of communication that everyone needs from their community periodically. I have needed encouragement recently, and am thankful for friends who have given more than I could ever ask for along the way.
All those taking ownership in my cause humble me. Whether it's donations for $1 per mile, or more, we have already made an impact! I hope in return that I can inspire and encourage those who wonder if they can overcome their own adversities. There are plenty of extraordinary individuals whom have inspired me to double down on life. Everyone needs it.
A community of good friends changes ones life through Inspiration and encouragement, which are contagious- Spread 'em!
With God's help I will cross the finish line of Grandma's Marathon on June 18th. I'll be doing live Facebook feeds on race day to push for last minute donations to the USO. With all your help, we've already raised nearly $3,000 for the USO and $500 for Shane's Purple Heart Hunts! To celebrate, I listened to some gospel music, ran 5 miles up a hill and 5 miles back home. It was great training!
Look for me on the day of the race and spread the word!
