Register To Virtually Run the Run to Jodi's House Half Marathon November 11, 2018
Proceeds go to TwoTim47.com. All funds raised will support my attempt to run 7 marathons in 7 days from April 6 - April 12th, 2019. This quest will culminate when I run the 7th annual Run for Respect 5k in Pontiac, ILL on April 13th, 2019. Every year my friend Laura Baumgardner and her special needs students at Pontiac High School host this run as a way of spreading the word to end the word. Their beautiful vision is to once and for all rid the world of the word retarded, and replace it with respect.
My friend Jodi, the host of the Run to Jodi's House, has for years been fighting for love and respect for a young boy named River. River has Spina Bifida, but Jodi fights to make sure that doesn't stand in the way of River getting the love and respect he deserves in life. Because the reality is, River and Laura's students, they are all really cool people. People like you and me. People who love getting respect. People who love even more giving respect.
So please register for Jodi's race. Run your miles any time. Run them all at once or over the course of a few days. Walk them if you need to, crawl them, bike them or, shoot, take a beautiful 13 mile drive and celebrate the beauty of this world. Whatever it takes, I have faith you can get it done.
