Why I Run
I run to feel free. Running provides me with a clean slate each and every time I lace up my shoes. Some runs are easy, others are difficult, but every time I am immersed in the moment. Running is my “me” time where I get to clear my head.
Running is also a great opportunity to be part of a larger community. While it is satisfying to have a good run it is that much better to experience it with others. There is an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.
WHY I SUPPORT BLESSONS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR WOMEN
Getting an education is not easy for everyone. I am thankful to have grown up with people around me that believed knowledge is a priority. That doesn’t mean it was always easy. I had a “lesson” in college that almost required me to take a semester off. Fortunately I was able to get through it and grow over time from it. The blessing in the situation is who I have become today, and I can’t think of a better way to give back than to help support others on their own journey.
