For the few of you that follow, you maybe have noticed my blog has not been updated in a while. I apologize. My life recently has been a lot of work, training for the half marathon, and sleeping. Nothing too exciting.
But I will update you on the training! Although I ran the Music City Half Marathon last year, I decided to train and fundraise with a group this year…and it has been fantastic. No, I’m not training with or using the creepy-looking barefoot toes shoes. But I AM raising money to help support Barefoot Republic, a nonprofit here in Nashville. Because they state their own mission better than I ever could : To facilitate the development of Christ-centered relationships between individuals who represent diverse racial, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, through an equally diverse platform of artistic, athletic and team building programs.
They really are an amazing organization and have amazing facilities for summer camp. I am proud to help raise money to help kids, who may never otherwise get to go to camp or interact with youth outside their own communities, have the opportunity to go to Barefoot Camp this summer. And training with a team, including my friends and beginning to form new friendships, is just an added benefit.
So check out their website and our team website, Run Barefoot Now, then if you feel like supporting, feel free to make a donation through the team site!
