Race For Recovery 5k/10k Virtual Run Update

HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated, supported, and helped spread word about the Race for Recovery.  There are over 225 people who will be running – and even more importantly – we’ve raised almost $9,000.

I’m so thankful and amazed with the amount of support that I have received in spreading the word about this race.  In the process, a few things were checked off my bucket list!! =)

Men’s Health: highlighted the Race for Recovery as one of the TOP TEN winter races in America!!!

Runner’s World: Posted the race info on their Facebook page (and caused my website to subsequently crash because of the unprecedented high traffic that ensued -> there are much worse things in life!)

    6. Humbled to be part of this race, as well! Way to go on the publicity — it was only a matter of time that the larger organizations highlight this great cause!

    7. Love how this grassroots movement has taken hold and grown! Hats off to you for bringing in all that cash–just fantastic.

      I may be running in my imagination b/c I can’t imagine physically running in two days (so wiped out this time). But I mean well!
