Needless to say, all in-person marathons have been cancelled this year. I was planning to run the Berlin Marathon (which was cancelled well in advance) and, to be honest, I was a little lost without 16 weeks of training. I've had the opportunity to coach 40 runners this summer and fall to cross their own finish lines and have been quietly wondering how I would cross my own this year...and then it came to me!
31431: 31 miles for my 31st birthday! I'm going to dip my toes into the world of Ultra Marathons with a 50k on December 19th (just 5 days before my 31st birthday)! As is tradition for my previous marathons, I will run this 50k as a fundraiser for the IM ABLE Foundation. It means so much to me to be able to take on this challenge and even moreso to find a way to redefine what's possible for those with physical, mental, or cognitive and/or behavioral challenges.
I certainly won't be able to do this without YOU! Please consider donating to this amazing foundation and redefining what's possible. Thank you so much!
