The Beginning of Our Giving

“From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” 
~ Arthur Ashe
Running season is fast approaching.
For some it never left.
 I'm not that tough anymore.

When in University I woke up at 5am 7 days a week year round to run.
Those days are long gone.

I really tried to get to the indoor track a couple times a week.
 And I got owned at strollercize whenever possible.
But nothing beats running outside, especially since we're lucky enough to live down the street from Mill Creek.

You may remember that last year I ran the Melissa's 10K as my postpartum-get-back-in-shape goal.
Other than that I ran only for fitness.
This year will be a little different.
 Jason, Chloe {our partners}, Jeff and I have committed to running as many charity races this summer as possible.
{We are also hoping to rope a few employees in.}
It's important to all of us to give back to our community.
We are not yet in the financial position to give dollars so we're giving what we can, time.
Now don't forget, this is a precious commodity around this joint.
We're not busting at the seams with spare time either.

Today I signed us up for our season opener.
We'll be running the Edmonton Police Foundation race.
It's a half marathon but we'll be crushing the 5K.
Go Team Shield Autobody!
{I did say season opener after all.}

I'm partial to the idea of the races since we also get the health benefit.
I would love to hear of any other ways we can be of service though.
Anyone know of charitable events that a could use some extra bodies?
