This Saturday, Marathon Mommies (an awesome blog encouraging women to get on their feet) will be running in honor of President Gordon B. Hinckley. Originally they wanted to get a total of 97 miles (for his 97 years) but after it hit Channel 2 News they have extended the invitation to everyone.
Are you ready for a challenge? Their challenge is extended to anyone of any religion to ask themselves "how far would you go?"In honor of President Hinckley's life they are encouraging women to take on the challenge to get on their feet. You can walk or you can run - but just do it in honor of a man who was an incredible example of living life to the fullest and being as healthy as you can be.
If you have been wanting to get active or if you run every day take a minute and challenge yourself to 1 mile or 100. For me, I am setting a goal higher than I've ever run... which will be SEVEN miles! Jen, a local reporter, in Salt Lake City Utah for KUTV 2 is doing a story on all blogger women out there, so visit the Marathon Mommies blog and let them know you are in. There's nothing like running with purpose!
