I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining the 27.2 Miracle Marathon which helps the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. My hospital of choice is Beaumont Children’s Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. Great hospital, great cause, great to be a part of. I’m on a mission to get back on the exercise track while saving kids’ lives. Since a traditional marathon is 26.2 miles, Miracle Marathon is adding 1 extra mile “for the kids.”
So, I laced up my sneakers and logged Day 1 of the C25k program. This is my 3rd or 4th time starting C25k. The furthest I got was week 3 or 4 and then I quit. Osteoarthritis and degenerative disc are only half the running battle. The good part about this marathon is that I don’t do it all at once. You do a mile a day. So, over the course of 27 days participants can walk, run, dance, skip or any other movement to reach the goal.
Doesn’t that sound like fun??
