Running For A Cause: Maria Wegner-Johnson

24 Aug

God Bless my friend Maria and her amazing ideas, kind heart and eagerness to run, run and run some more.  Maria runs daily as part of her training for her first full marathon but instead of just running for self accomplishment (which is totally awesome, too) she runs for a cause.  Well I am honored to announced that Mara is running for the Jill E. Harrington Hanzalik Memorial Fund!  How cool is that?

Maria wrote about ways to donate in her blog post.  It reads, “Rather than having folks donate a flat rate (you can still do that), I thought I’d add some fun to it by pledging per mile, per pair of shoes (I’ve already burned through one pair!), per tube of nuun or ounces of Gatorade consumed, per protein shake, per ice bath taken, per mile biked in cross-training (not many, btw), calories burned…whatever you want. I will keep it all in a spreadsheet and provide updates weekly.”

So please join me in giving Maria some motivation and encouragement as she looks to conquer her first marathon in November with the Jill E. Harrington Hanzalik Memorial Fund in mind!
