living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

The Disney opportunity

Comfort Zone Camp logoNov. 10 was supposed to be the last marathon for a while, but a few days before that a friend of mine asked if I would be interested in joining a Disney Marathon team through Comfort Zone Camp's Grief Relief Team. My first thought was absolutely not. No more marathons for me. Then the marathon went down the way it did and I quickly realized that I've been taking running way too seriously for the past couple of years.

Running Disney would be the opportunity to do a race purely for fun. Then I thought about the opportunity of taking the family to Disney and then also supporting this great organization. It's been way too long since I've run an event for a reason other than personal satisfaction.

Disney will not be an "A" race for me by any means, but I believe it will be a weekend to cherish for years to come.

I want to thank my friends at Comfort Zone Camp for reaching out to me to join the Grief Relief Team.

Headquartered in Richmond, Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit organization that helps transform the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling.

Camps are held year-round throughout the country for kids age 7-17. I can't wait to be a part of this special weekend.

In addition to their website, you can find Comfort Zone Camp on Facebook and Twitter. To donate to the Grief Relief Team, visit Comfort Zone Camp CEO Lloyd Osgood's fundraising page

Comfort Zone envisions a world where grieving children are not forgotten or left to grieve alone, and are supported by a wide community that understands and appreciates them.
