A few years ago we were sitting around trying to come up with some good deals for Black Friday. We tossed a few ideas out but nothing felt right. We wanted to do something different. Something to show the community around us what we are thankful for. Something to make a difference. We decided to give back to some of our close charity partners who give to and support our community all year long.
As the running community is well aware, it's fall marathon season. Those of us training for the Philadelphia Marathon on November 19th, or various other 26.2 mile races, are already cranking out long runs every weekend. This year, after a two-year hiatus, I am returning to marathon training -- this time for the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon on December 2nd. And once again, I am training with the help of my running team, American Cancer Society DetermiNation Philadelphia.
As the weather is getting nicer and opportunities to train outside become more frequent, consider running for a good cause! Local nonprofit organization, the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, is a beneficiary of several endurance events in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and they are looking for motivated runners to join Team MSAA!
