We learned about the Miracle Marathon this week, and I have to tell you: we’re pumped.
When I was first contacted by Children’s of Alabama about the event, I thought, “Hey, why not? I like to run, some of my readers are runners, and both of the kids have been treated at Children’s of Alabama. Perfect fit!”
All of which are true.
But completing a mile a day for 27 days really isn’t a huge deal for me personally. I run a few times a week already, and I walk the dogs most every morning for about a mile, so … a mile is not a challenge or sacrifice. But then I got to thinking, and I asked Sarah Kate if she’d like to try it.
Her answer, without hesitation, was yes.
The start of the Miracle Marathon is two months away, so a lot can happen between now and then – in fact, we’re counting on it. But will she be able to walk a mile a day for 27 days by then? I have no idea. It’ll be a challenge, for sure. But she wants to do it, so do it we will, even if it means biking the mile instead of walking or running. She might even have to have a Fitbit. 🙂
We’d love for you to join our team, donate to Sarah Kate’s marathon, or even create your own team to support YOUR favorite Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (Fun fact: Children’s Miracle Network was a presenting sponsor of the runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend – are the stars aligning or what?)
