In the morning I’m running the race that’s in the title. My friend is the race director. Meet Ann:
She’s race director because her friend’s daughter has Dandy Walker Syndrome. This race raises funds to help out these sweet little kiddos with Dandy Walker.
The little girl’s name is Abby. Hence the name of the race.
Dandy Walker Syndrome is most unfortunate. I’ve been briefed on it, and basically Abby was born missing 30% of her brain.
Last year I did alright in this race. You can read my recap HERE
It wasn’t my fastest time, but I still finished like 3rd overall and 1st in my age group. Just goes to prove that you never know who your competition will be at any given race. 😉 I was glad that I could come through for a good cause. It’s still one of my fave medals.
So again in the morning I will run this race. I hope to have a good performance. Why? Well of course, I always want to PR. I also want to support my friends. Buuuuut I also really enjoy and get extra motivation when I know the race is supporting a good cause. We’ll see how it goes.
How bout you? Does the charity help you choose a race? How cool is that medal?
