The Philadelphia Free To Breathe 5k is tomorrow! This is how my whole running career began! With a simple google of "walks for lung cancer". Who knew it would turn me into a runner?? This race will be my second year on the planning committee and running it. Last year I was recovering from bronchitis and got a 31:33. Not bad for a sickie. I hope to come in somewhere in the 28s tomorrow.
A lot of people say their life changes after they lose a loved one. For me, that would be a huge understatement. My Dad has motivated and inspired me so many times since he's passed. I've created a product as a result of his passing. I'm pursuing a dream in bringing this product to the market to help folks celebrate and remember their loved ones. I've become a runner whose completed two 1/2 marathons. Every run provides a quiet time to reflect on my wonderful memories of my Dad.
Life is short. Seize each day and make a difference.
