It’s official, I’ve paid my entry to the “English channel conqueror,” event and America’s Shamrock Run, both for great causes and fitness. I began racing for a cause yesterday and completed my first (of many to come) charity runs. 21 miles, planting five trees… my finisher certificate is below and my medal for finishing is being sent to me.
In March, I’m doing America’s Shamrock Run for St. Jude’s children’s research hospital, they are accepting supporting donations on my behalf as well and I was given a link to share with friends and family… click here to support their research and work. Even $5 helps…
I am planning on doing more charity events, hopefully at minimum one every month, and preferably one’s I can bike and not run in (my knees can’t handle the impact of running).
I absolutely love the idea of running/biking for a good cause and to keep fitness levels high. It’s like combining body and spirit into one exercise and the fact that you have to push yourself to complete the event adds mind into the mix.
