With my brother's help (he is coaching me) I started training in April for the Women's Half Marathon in Tempe. The race isn't until November 6th so I decided that I wanted to try to find a half to do sometime in the middle to keep me motivated through the summer months. I signed up for AFC in San Diego on August 21. I also decided to join a group called Sole Sisters. Sole Sisters is a training group for the Women's Half Marathon that runs together and raises money for Chances for Children.
Chances for Children supports programs that provide access to sports, physical education, and character education for youth. They provide fitness training, nutritional programs and educational services to students at schools throughout Arizona. I have made a commitment to raise $1000.00 by November.
This blog will be dedicated to my training and my committment to raising money for Chances for Children.
