Dear RunnerLovers,

Today, I just want to talk about running for a cause.  When I first started running, I read all sorts of books and blogs ( I still do).  That's how I found, I Run For Michael.  This organization pairs runners up with running-buddies.  These running-buddies, cannot run for themselves because of debilitating illnesses; you run for them! I thought that this was such a great idea.   It's always wonderful to feel like a part of something, when you're sick.  So I joined and started running for a little girl suffering from cancer.  I sent her cards, daily messages like "I ran ten miles for you today, sweetheart", little gifts through the mail and talked to her mom every week about running and everything in-between.  There's an amazing community of runners in, I Run for Michael.  Joining a group like this, even if it's just for a couple months can be the most fulfilling experience.  This is just one example of a cause I have ran for and truly loved.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to their week! Keep Running!
