As much as I love running, I do realize that it takes a bit of crazy to choose to run this far.
Seriously, who signs up to run an ultra marathon anyway?
For me, participating in the 2019 Run Across Haiti was a no-brainer.
Running has always been my release. Whether I'm stressed about something at work, feeling uncreative, or simply annoyed that I had to sit in Steeler traffic on the way home, a good hard run can literally turn my day around.
So why 200 miles? Why Haiti?
The Run Across Haiti combines two of my favorite things: a run that will challenge me both mentally and physically and an opportunity to help others. How lucky am I that I get to make a difference doing something I love?
And hey, who wouldn't want to escape a cold Pittsburgh February? Bring on the sun.
I am passionate about helping underserved populations across the globe. In February of 2019 I will be running across the country of Haiti to raise money for local citizens...literally...running across the country! This blog is dedicated to sharing my journey and bringing awareness to this cause.
