100 Days Until St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon

img_2432

Knowing the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon is only 100 days away gives me a sense of urgency to get ready. At least when I first got the reminder in my emails today. But really 100 days is plenty of time to get physically ready.

If fact, I’m feeling pretty good about it right now. I had a shakey month of December and started the year with a cold/bronchitis/virus but I’m over all of that now. Training went well last week and so far this week it has been even better.

I do have a sense of urgency about something else related to this half marathon though. And that is hitting my newest goal of raising $2620 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Thanks to so many generous friends I’ve raised $1740 so far but I know the remainder may be a little harder to get.

To my knowledge no one in my family has directly benefitted from St. Jude but I do appreciate the indirect benefit of St. Jude. My granddaughter was born with hydrocephalus and spent quite a bit of time at Riley’s Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, IN. I’m happy to say my granddaughter is a now a middle school student doing just fine. I know without the special skills and care that hospitals like St. Jude this might not be the case.

Won’t you help? Whether it’s $5 or $500, every little bit helps. Please. Help me help St. Jude. You can donate to my cause by visiting a special website, http://heroes.stjude.org/rickhannon

Don’t wait a 100 days to donate. Please donate today.
