I have decided to sign up for the Mattoon to Peoria St. Jude Run. I AM NOT A RUNNER! For some reason God keeps calling me back to run again. I have coached Girls on the Run for 3 seasons and this coming fall will be my fourth. The first two seasons I was not super excited about. The third I was very excited about at the end and said yes immediately to a fourth! God has called me to running yet again for the Mattoon to Peoria Run. None of these are selfish, I just want to run for myself, projects. These are helping others and doing what I can, (or trying). Now God is calling me again to run. I have come across a running program online called Run For God( ). It incorporates training for a 5k and lessons about God. This is something I have not been able to get out of my head for a couple of weeks now. At this point I cannot even run more than 1 block. I have to be able to run 4 miles at a time in just a few weeks.  August 1 & 2 to be exact! I am definitely scared but I have a huge support team. My parents, Husband, my children friends from work and church family. I know God will pull me through this if he wants me to do it. I cannot wait to run for St. Jude.

Did you know?
  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
  • Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
  • St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies of cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
Please help me by donating for my August 1 & 2, 2014 Mattoon to Peoria Run!
