I didn’t think I was gonna do it this year. I didn’t feel like going through the training process. So I didn’t enter the lottery.
First I saw blog posts from a bunch of my friends who had signed up… and felt pangs of jealousy.
And before I knew it, I was scouring the internet for charity bibs.
All of this to say: I am proud to be running the 40th Annual Marine Corps Marathon as part of the Diabetes Action Team. I considered other charities, some of which required smaller minimum funds raised – but diabetes was a major player in my maternal grandfather’s death, and DAT gives me the opportunity to run in his memory.
To earn my bib, I need to raise a minimum of $500 for the Diabetes Action Research & Education Foundation. Will you donate to the cause? Every little bit counts! The donation is tax deductible, and the money goes to a good cause. Even a single dollar will get me closer! Click here to donate.
So yeah! Here I am, back on the road to MCM. Who will I see out on the course?
Don’t forget, you can follow FRoA on Twitter @fairestrunofall and on Instagram @fairestrunofall. If you have any questions or thoughts, leave a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See ya real soon!
