Imagined

I Never Imagined This…

I never imagined I would be doing this, but hey we don’t experience more without growth nor without challenge. 

The last few years have been GREAT for me. I have grown, I have learned and I have been able to continue to get to know myself. In doing so, running has opened my eyes and continues to remind me of the capabilities we hold within us and in most cases that we hide deep down. 

I am no professional, nor am I an expert. I am just a young boy, a growing man with dreams. With every dream comes a journey and within this journey, I run. Even though I have bigger dreams, running is a way I can experience the quick wins, the success and imitate the feeling of what it will be like when I make it to my dreams. A single run metaphorically reflects the very cycle of emotions and feelings I continuously encounter and will continue to encounter as I adventure into the unknown and chase the pursuit of happiness and the pursuit of greatness. The more I run, the closer I feel to my endgame.  

I have shared this a bit already but across the coming months and hopefully, throughout the year I have decided to keep active even more through the challenge, yet the amazing experience of running fun runs and similar runs.

Kicking off I have April planned out and locked in. 3 runs all across different location and for all different causes.

I WILL DO THE RUNNING PART. CAN YOU DO THE FUNDRAISING? AND TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

I invite you to get involved, become part of the experience through support. This doesn’t have to be monetary (all donations >$2 are tax deductible) but it can be through encouragement and share this journey with others!

These services reduce feelings of isolation and empower people living with dementia and those caring for them. With your help, we can make sure that our support is always available to those who need it.

I hope to have you become part of my journey and experience. Of course, I will be VLOGGING these runs and share my experience for you all to see it like it was at the moment.
