It’s that time of year where I lace up my running shoes and start hitting the trail, building step by step, mile by mile, until I get to 26.2. Yes, I’m training to run the Austin Marathon on Sunday February 14, 2016 as a member of TeamFX Austin.
TeamFX is a group of Austinites with the goal of keeping fit and healthy as well as supporting our community. We are running to support the Austin Children’s Shelter. This will be my 6th season with the team and my 7th full marathon (along with a few half-marathons).
Join me in the mission to create a world without child abuse and neglect, one step at a time. Thank you greatly for your support!
