Why just knock something off the bucketlist when it can also impact others for a great cause? In this spirit, I will be running in the Novi Half Marathon to benefit Living Hope International Orphange in Ndola, Zambia! I'm trying to raise $8,000 for the organization.
I trained for the half-marathon for over 10 weeks, but the last two weeks were injury prone due to severe shin splints and calf cramps. Praise God, by the last week all of the issues faded away and I was able to run the race in 1:44, finishing 3rd in my age group!! My legs are dead now, but I loved the race and felt awesome finishing strong!
