A Different Gift
Instead of presents this year, I decided to do something a little different.
If it is one thing I have realized, I would not be where I am right now without my family and friends. They wouldn't let me fall; and if I did slip they were right there to catch me, pick me back up and kick me in the ass if need be. I would not have made it through these several months if it wasn't for them.
And I also realized that not everyone has that. There are many out there on their own; some thriving, some struggling.
I thought this year instead of gifts, I would give someone what you all have given me. Opportunity.
It was through running and sport that I was able to find unbelievable friendships, courage, and strength. On this Christmas Morning, I would like you to know that a gift has been given in your honor to RunningWorks.
I can't say thank you enough for helping me get up on my own two feet. It's because of you that I can help someone else get on theirs.
Wishing you warmth, love and a very Merry Christmas.
