Once again I will be running in an event that is important to me.
When Koa was younger, I very much thought he would benefit from a service dog; however, it takes two years and $35,000 for one certified dog.
BC & Alberta Guide Dogs provides dogs to the visually impaired, autistics, and veterans free of charge!
My heart is warmed to know there is something out there to support those in need.
I plan to run the 5 km - but I've recently upped my run distance to 6km and been hitting better times than ever before - so you never know... I may just take on the 10km or even the 25! (... okay maybe not the 25 this year)
You can register for the run (and join me on Team Tempea!) or show your support with a donation here until March 25th.
I've completed my first leg of the race hitting the 5k at my personal best of 28:13.
That's right - SEVEN minutes faster than last year. In your face, last year me!
Next up I have ambitious plans to take on the 10km. Stay tuned to hear my results!
