First miles of 100 Miles For Hope

Ansbach, OT

I am currently 12 weeks into my Half Marathon training program. This sets me up to complete the 16 weeks of training on Labor Day weekend. Therefore, I plan to run a virtual Half Marathon on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020. There have been some ups and downs, but I have persisted.

Yesterday, I found out about The American Legion's 100 Miles For Hope, which started yesterday. As I am already doing the mileage, I figured I could help out this great cause, the Veterans and Children Foundation.

Therefore, I have completed my first 3.8 miles today. I will continue to add mileage throughout my training period.

I should point out that I am currently living in Germany.
