40 Mile Run

Lately I have been thinking a lot about a 40 mile race I would like to complete in March.  In addition to completing the race I was hoping to raise $5,000 for Covenant House.  I was introduced to Covenant House by Steph from Life According to Steph when she did a sleep out last March, you read about that here.  I wasn’t a foster kid growing up but my teenage years were hard.  I was raped when I was 14 years old by a friend of the family.  It happened three times and I didn’t say anything for a year.  So family gatherings were challenging to say the least.  I eventually said something and he went to jail but it was a lot to handle as a teenager.  My family helped me through it even though I was a mega bitch.  I know I would not have survived that period in my life if I didn’t have a support system.  So my heart goes out to these kids that have no one in their lives.

I was talking about the run with my sister in law over the weekend and she asked me if I have ever not reached one of my goals.  Nope, I usually reach my goals.  Like I said New Year’s resolutions are my Jam.  But I don’t think I really have put myself out there like this goal.  My goals are usually easily attainable.  They just require discipline and hard work which I am not afraid of.  But this goal requires me to put myself out there and announce to the world that I want to run 40 miles and give me your money.  It’s intimidating.
