    It makes sense that charity races would be a good idea. Not only would it encourage people to get out and get fit, but it would also raise money for a good cause! I'll be sure to consider giving one a try if I notice any charity runs going on around me. http://gotcureage.com/pages/5k-race

    Nice article pure informative and knowledgeable thank you for sharing it. Vidmate is just about the best streaming service that I have come across and wouldn't want to exchange it for anything else. I had been looking forward to using Vidmate on my PC but I haven't gotten around to follow the instructions on how to do it. None-the-less Vidmate is a miracle. http://vidmatedownloadforpc.com/

  • Can't lose with this situation. Working on your health and giving back to those who really need it.
  • I totally agree with this article....for 3 years in a row I walked in the "50 miles in 3 days" for MS awareness. I proudly walked with my DH picture posted on my back and my grown children participating in the food station table and/or cheering station. It was an emotional three day event!!

    This event will collect more money from the participants,if they would announce about their race to increase the fund and thus this charity http://cheapcustomessay.net/ will help the needed person.
  • I've been running for a little over a year now after joining Team Muscle Makers😃. I completed my first half marathon at Disneyland in August of last year, and then my second just 2.5 months later! We are now just over 7 weeks out from the Tinkerbell Half Marathon and I couldn't be more excited! Shooting for a PR plus I get to hang out for a weekend with my awesome teammates and raise money for a great cause!

    I do Breast Cancer walks with groups of friends.
  • I do a few of these walks a year.
    And would you believe my town's high school still has DONKEY Basketball?! Not a thing of the past here!
  • I just walk to exercise. I don't go for anything else. Just stay health.
  • On New Year’s Eve 2011/2012, I got engaged to my boyfriend of seven years. Soon after we began planning for an October wedding. While I should have been excited, I was sort of withdrawn and sad about my wedding. You see, I had lost my father to a very rare form of Lymphoma in 2003. The thought of him not being at my wedding was depressing.

    I thought long and hard about a way to honor him during this special time in my life. My future sister in law had completed an event with Team in Training in the fall of 2011. I went to an informational meeting and immediately signed up for an event. Me, a lazy couch potato decided it was a great idea to run/walk a half marathon. On April 29, 2012 I completed my first half marathon. It was an amazing and rewarding feeling!

    This year I am signed up for two more events with TNT. I will participate in a 10K on April 14th followed by another half marathon on April 28. TNT has become near and dear to me. Go Team!
