Since the Race for the Place is my "race-a-versary" and running has always been more than just lacing up to me, every year I run it in honor/memory of someone for inspiration. This helps me train harder leading up to the race and also pushes me to do my absolute best on race day. I also decided in 2016 to make it my goal race each year. As you know, I’m dealing with a mysterious hamstring issue and it has kept me from running and training the way I would like to so for this year's race, I will forego a time goal and take the glass half full approach…just be thankful that God is still allowing me to run at all and more importantly, has given me another year of being cancer free. But even much more important than that, I have decided to dedicate this year's race to all of those who have or who are battling something WAY WAY worse than a cranky hamstring…cancer...and will run in honor of the warriors, the survivors, and in memory of the taken. My fundraising goal for this year is $2,018.
