That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I’d just run across the great state of Alabama. And that’s what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going. – Forrest Gump
A lady I go to church with has recently started running, and it’s for a reason, and a good reason at that. The local park near where she lives is in disrepair, and the kids in the ‘hood just don’t have a good place to go play. So, she decided to start running to raise awareness (and hopefully a little cash). She set up a website at
and I encourage you to go there and cheer her on. She’s suffered a few setbacks, but I will let you read and experience that for yourself. If you can find it in your heart to donate, that would be great as well. None of us can do it all by ourselves, but if we work together, we can accomplish great things.
