Embrace Life Run!

On June 30th, my dogs and I will be participating in the inaugural ASPCA Virtual 5K!

Although I often walk over 3 miles with my dogs on a regular basis, I am challenging myself by running this. 

Why?

Because I can.

My birthday is this month and feel like it is a great time to reflect and improve myself. I appreciate that my body still has mobility and why not provide a little challenge? The only time I run is when I am late for my plane and it's not pretty.

The best part is that I get to do it on my own time with my dogs! We have started conditioning ourselves a couple of weeks ago and I think we will be ready to run the whole distance by the 30th. 

I am also honored to be raising the awareness and the needed funding to support the ASPCA's programs. The work we do saves lives and improves animal welfare of dogs, cats, and horses nationwide.

Please support me by making a donation and help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals and my own life!

Thank you!
