I cannot believe I will be running 26.2 miles in just 1 month. It is something I never thought I would do.
I have been training with an amazing team for the past several months, most of whom I have never met.
There are, however, a few people who I know really well that I look forward to seeing on race day!
1. Grace Gerdin- An amazing wife and mother of four who will be running in honor of her mother who is a cancer survivor, her husband who is a cancer survivor and Kristen, her dear friend and co-founder of Inheritance of Hope.
2. Angela Bailey- An amazing wife and mother of two who will be running in honor of her father who died of cancer when she was a child, her mother who is a cancer survivor and Kristen.
3. Michael Davis- An amazing man committed to sharing his life with others. His father died of cancer when he was an adolescent and he runs to honor his memory and to share his passion for Inheritance of Hope and our mission.
We all run to show our enthusiasm and support for families with a parent battling a life-threatening illness and young children.
We run to raise money to help these families make amazing memories together on a Legacy Retreat.
We run to share an inheritance of hope with those we meet along the way.
I have to admit, I am not necessarily looking forward to running 26.2 miles however I am SO EXCITED to use my healthy body to serve and support others as they face a life-threatening illness.
