Archive for December, 2011

So I completed the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon on November 5, 2011. I realize it’s been almost a month since then, but forgive me as I’ve been super busy and haven’t gotten a chance to give you an update. The race was fun and the fundraising was phenomenal! I asked for a suggested donation of $10 per mile, but so many of you went above and beyond. And then more of you continued to give donations even after I had all of my miles sponsored. In total, I raised $661.20 for Gracehaven!

The shirt I wore in the marathon boasted the names of my sponsors on the back. It also mentioned that I was running for Gracehaven, which sparked a few conversations with fellow runners and I got to talk about my cause =).
