With Thanksgiving in the air, on a daily basis, through my running, I have found new reasons to give thanks. Running has taught me many things about life. Someone once said when you have your health you have everything.
November is pancreatic cancer awareness month. I knew I needed to do something more to help raise awareness. For the past 30 days, I have spent each day with someone who is either a survivor or lost a loved one to pancreatic cancer, with my new campaign called 30 Days of Hope. Through this journey, being with people who have been affected by this disease has caused me to think about how precious life is. How important it is to do what you love and be with the ones you love. Be thankful that you can run even the distances you can. Most people can not go that far.
Having a goal of a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or a Full Marathon is an amazing healthy goal. That is why I love the Kona Marathon. You are surrounded by the Aloha Spirit and let’s face it, when you finish the Kona Marathon you are in Kona, Hawaii and it doesn’t get much better then that.
Hope to see you there.
