Lots to say about today, but I feel I can put it simply for now: I had fun today. With the help of some of you awesome people, you helped me raise nearly $500 in a week for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. You also gave me a humbling challenge, not just of running the miles, but to remember the children that I’m running for.
My feet might be sore at mile 18, or I may get a cramp that stops me in my tracks at mile 24, but I’ll never know the pain that the patients at that hospital have endured. And so I make it through one mile at a time, thankful to be able to run, to be healthy, and to have a pretty great life.
