A few years ago, I began a program of walking and running to help lose weight and improve my health. Eventually, I focused on running, gaining confidence to participate in a few 5K races—that is, 3.1 miles. Next, I tackled half-marathons, which are 13.1 miles.
And I always picked races for organizations whose mission I support and that benefit our local community.
My latest challenge? Virtual racing … which isn’t much of a challenge at all!
