After running a half marathon a few years ago I made a goal to run a full marathon before I turn 40 in December 2019. I am registered for the Athens authentic marathon in November this year 😃.... I haven't had my own children but am blessed with family and friends who have brought beautiful little people into this world. I have been lucky to witness some of the births and see the wonderful care and help from the medical profession. Some of the babies I've posted pictures of wouldnt be here if not for the emergency medical attention received. Sadly some mothers in the world have to walk the distance of a marathon just to receive basic care and many die during childbirth due to lack of medical help. The money raised for Every Mother Counts is for them because every mother bringing life into the world is doing something amazing with her body and deserves the best care.
