MS Run the US Relay Invitation

Usually on Fridays I would be posting my Friday Five but this week I have some really big news I want to share instead!  Recently I applied to be a part of a relay team that will run across the US beginning in April.  The relay team consists of 18 runners that will cover 3,100 miles across America.  Each runner is assigned a segment to run that consists of a marathon distance every day for 6 consecutive days.  That’s about 160 miles per runner!  You might be asking why someone would want to do this?  In this case each runner commits to fundraising $10,000 over ten months that goes towards an awesome organization – the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, to help fund research.  My family has been touched by this disease so this opportunity holds a special place in my heart. 

Yesterday I received confirmation in the mail that I have been selected to join the 2015 relay team!  I feel honored and blessed to be invited to join the team of amazing runners.  It is without a doubt that I accept this invitation!  I am excited to be given this opportunity to run for those who can’t.  I can’t wait to find out which segment I get assigned to!  To learn more about the relay, go here. And for more information on MS use this link.
