Run Hard Lexington Half Marathon – December 6, 2014

I trained for and ran in the  Run Hard Lexington Half Marathon today.   This was the first year that Run Hard partnered with the Warm A Heart PattyPacks to bring a great race to the Lexington, SC area.

Run Hard is a non-profit running club that offers an 8-week after school running program to help prepare boys for an upcoming 5K race.  The Warm A Heart PattyPacks is also a non-profit organization that strives to assist families affected by lengthy stays in pediatric intensive care.  I really enjoy contributing to charities that are community centered.  I’m especially supportive of getting young kids moving.
