Inspired by my son-in-law and his many running endeavors (all for good causes) I have decided to take on my first run! While it is one of the smallest runs out there it will still be a huge accomplishment for me! I would like use my weekly training and hard work for a good cause, a non-profit organization that dedicates it time and all efforts to teaching people kindness and compassion to animals, each other and our planet. This team of great hearted individuals are those at The Gentle Barn, an organization highly respected by my daughter, her husband, and now myself. I have set a goal of $310.00 in reference to the 3.1 miles I will be running, overachieving that amount would be even better! If I can get 31 individuals to donate just $10 a piece I will meet my goal however, please know that any amount given will be greatly appreciated! Come see my daughter and myself run on April 9, 2016 at 6:00am in Hollywood. I plan to hold a 10:00 pace (if not better) and finishing within 30 minutes. The training starts this December. Thank you all for your time and consideration, wish me luck!
