at the beginning of 2010 i weighted 223 pounds which raised a concern about my health and well being, that's when I decided to start running to lose weight, at the beginning I was only able to run 1 mile at the most without spitting my lungs out. By June of 2011 I weighted 175 pounds and until today I have run 2 half marathons, 2 10k races and several 5k races, now I've set myself a bigger challenge, run a full marathon, in all this years of running regularly all my clothes, running gear and shoes have worn out and are no longer in good condition for running, when doing the math for all the stuff I need I realize its a pretty penny, I'm reaching out for all my friends who believe in me to help me out to reach my goal, I need to pay the registration fees, training shoes for training and for the day of the race, new shirts and shorts for all my training days (4-5 days a week) I would stink bad if I use the same clothes all week long :) , I would need a hydration pack or belt to drink while doing my long runs of over 10 miles, compression shorts, power gels, compression socks, etc etc, its just way to expensive to buy all that. I would appreciate any donation for as little as it is and by having friends to help me I will have an extra push on race day, I really don't know I'd be able to run 26 miles and knowing that my friends helped me out will help me to give the little extra at the end by not wanting to disappoint everybody who helped Me raise funds. At the end ill publish my race result and I will mention and thank everybody who helped me. before hand. THANK YOU!!
