Thank You Doesn't Feel Like Enough

St. Jude

Last weekend I ran the St. Jude Half Marathon in Memphis. I wanted to thank each and everyone of you who had encouraging words for me, donations for the kids, and just the overall support.

It was an experience like I've never had in over 25 years of road racing.

There were over 20,000 runners-yes 20,000. Over $8 million was raised last year by last weekends event. It was truly amazing.

I had heard that running through the St. Jude campus could be emotional, but I was not prepared for the special connection I made out on the course. I would love to share my special story with anyone that has time!

So, even though my long distance running career is finished I found something that I want to continue to be a part of in the future. I had a little time on my hands so between mile 7-10 I was plotting and planning how I could participate in different ways in the future:)

Thank you from the Heart & Merry Christmas!
