I was thinking, I can’t very well bring up a marathon in my last post without sharing details!
One of the coolest experiences in my life!! I signed up for it through Team Challenge, one of the fundraising arms of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.
Completing this goal left me with such a huge sense of accomplishment and empowerment. RUNNING IS HARD, but the overall experience of training and forming bonds with your running partners is truly priceless! I’ll let you see for yourself in a few of my photos.
I met people from all walks of life. Young, old, professional, students but all with the same concern: How do we find a cure for C & C? Many of them were not just participants. There were doctors, caregivers, those who had published books on the subject as well as monthly newsletters on wellness. Coming together for this unique occasion is a time of healing, learning, and celebration. If you ever get the opportunity, try it!
