Running the Sporting life 10k race this past Sunday was big for me for a couple reasons but the most important was that I did something I love (exercise) to help people in need (kids with cancer).
Believe me training was not the most enjoyable. The spring so far has been rainy and cold and the ankle that I broke a couple years back aches like your grandaddys trick knee if I run for any longer than ten minutes. But yet the task was made much easier knowing that I had your support.
Together we raised $655 for camp Oochigeas and helped send a child with cancer to camp so he/she can enjoy their youth the way you and I did. It was an amazing feeling crossing that finish line with 12,000 other people who could have been doing anything else but decided to help a bunch of kids that really need it.
For those that donated I sincerely thank you for your generosity. At the risk of sounding like a hippie, I believe that when we give gifts that matter the energy we create in the world reciprocates and makes the world better overall. I’m happy that we could be a part of that positivity that we all want to see in the world.
I managed to trick one other person to run with me so special thanks to Elizabeth who ran and came in at 1:06:00, a great finish.
Stay fit and have fun doing it,
