- Proceeds go to a rental scholarship fund for people working toward more healthy and permanent housing. All people deserve a safe, affordable place to call home, so this is a cause well worth my support, and yours too I hope.
- This was the first race that I ran/walked in 2012. Who could've guessed then that I would get hooked on running?

- Bonus: I just found out this year's shirts are long-sleeved!
