The Motivation

Why? That is the question. Why would I willingly subject myself to pounding the pavement for 13.1 miles - not to mention all the training before hand? Why would I commit myself to nagging every person I know to raise $1410 for a cause that has never directly impacted my life? The answer is simple...I will regret it if I don't. The initial drive for me was that I wanted to train for this half-marathon, but I knew that keeping up my motivation would be a challenge. I thought it would be easier with the support that Team in Training would provide. However, when I was sitting in that meeting, with tears in my eyes, listening to Matthew's mother describe his ongoing battle against Leukemia my fate was sealed. I knew I had to do this.
