Hi Friends, Family, Running Community, Blog followers, etc.
Other than my family and friends, many people know me as “THE RUNNER,” but there is more I like to share about myself. Recently I decided to join a new shul to grow my relationship with God. I did grow with God a bit in my early adult years, but not as good as I can. I like my new place of worship. I enjoy the smaller group setting and meeting new congregants while growing closer to God. I want to make my religion more of a lifestyle.
Recently I started taking classes at my new congregation on the process of having an adult Bat Mitzvah in early summer with a more Hasidic twist. For most temples, when a youngster is lined up to have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, the Honoree usually does a community service project to make their experience more holy. As an adult preparing for a Bat Mitzvah, I am expected to give back to improve God’s world.
I am choosing to raise funds for the American Lung Association as my Bat Mitzvah project. This charity is dear to me because I am asthmatic. I want to use my skills, and running ability to do something special.
Over the next few months,I will be training to run the Dopey Challenge in Disney World - consisting of a 5k, 10k Half Marathon and Full Marathon. I will run to help support the American Lung Association to make this event more spiritual. Please consider donating, sharing, and checking out my running blog. I look forward to sharing with you all my adventures.
Like having brown eyes, and dark hair, asthma is part of my makeup. Let’s fight asthma and other lung diseases.
