I have run the Rock n Roll Half Marathon for many, many years.  My husband and I used to take turns – one run one year the other run the other – honestly, I am not sure why we did that.  Hmm…  After our son was born I have been the only one running.  Maybe a way for me to get that baby fat gone 🙂

This year, I have chosen to run it for something far larger than me, the race and all involved.  I am running for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.” – St. Jude website

One thing that has always stood out with me with St. Jude is how no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. https://www.stjude.org/

This is the main reason I have chosen to run for St. Jude this year and help raise funds for  ALL families and their children involved.
