This adventure just got even more awesome

When I told  my friend Beth that Kevin and I are going to raise $5,000 and train for a half marathon for Crohn’s and colitis research, she didn’t donate to our campaign or tell us it sounded awesome.

Nope, she did something even more amazing than I could have imagined.

Beth said: How do I sign up?

And then she did. Immediately.

Beth is going to train with the Northeast Ohio chapter of Team Challenge, raise $3,000, and then come with us and the Pittsburgh team to Virginia for race day! 

And this is why Beth is one of my most amazing friends. She is one of the most fun, loyal, and caring people I know and I cannot wait to get my running shoes on with her!

She’s seen a lot of people who are extremely sick with Crohn’s, colitis, and other digestive ailments in her job as a Physician’s Assistant in Colorectal Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. She works to improve the lives of people with Crohn’s and UC every day at work and now she’s committed a solid chunk of her free time to fundraising for cures and more support. I can’t even begin to articulate the depth of my gratitude and excitement.

Now I get to run with not one, but two of my best advocates by my side. What a lucky girl I am. Truly.

Me and my newest teammate!
