Why I Run

I actually have 3 main reasons:

1)  I like to keep fit and it is a challenge.  When I first started running 4 years ago I couldn't even run 1 mile.  Building up to run my first half marathon in 2013 was a big deal.  I want to be in good shape to play and run with my grandson!

2)  I like to share the enthusiasm of running with two of my daughters.  They are the ones who talked me into running my first marathon!

Last, but not least, the third reason is I like to eat and drink.  Need I say more?


Why I support Blessons

Life throws curve balls at you when you least expect it.  I want to do what I can to support women who are in rough situations.  After retiring from Caterpillar I now work at a junior college in Peoria.  One of their core values is "Changing the world by increasing knowledge and skills".  Blessons also helps to drive this value!

Please see the information provided on the great work Blessons does to help women. Even donating $1 you are helping me to achieve my goal. Thank you!
