I turned 30 at the end of last year. And like any good milestone I looked back, way back, over the years and recognize all the good people I've met. I'm grateful to have been raised by good people, raised and socialized with good people, and able to keep good people close to me even when life takes us in different directions. Ever since I began to race my elementary school classmates, since we played blacktop soccer, since I was encouraged to pursue high school track, since I "graduated" from sports in my undergrad years but kept running for the fun of it, I've loved to run. And in my attempt to see how far I can take this thing, I'm seeking support for this adventure and asking some of the good people I've met over the years to donate on my behalf for free entry into this year's Philly Love Run Half Marathon! I'm running for the love of all the people who helped get me to where I am today, paying it forward to those who will need it tomorrow. Thanks for donating on my behalf!
