Well, the truth is that Sloane asked me to and having served on Sloane's Board with the Gateway Village YMCA, I couldn't say no. In addition, running is a very important part of my life and I know, first hand, the balance that it brings. Running provides that physical challenge that drives a healthy competitive spirit that shows us that through discipline, we all can achieve our goals.
I am a Board Member and a member of the Development Committee.
My hope is that they find personal satisfaction in setting goals and achieving them. Thereby helping them understand that with self discipline, determination and encouragement from caring people, that they do control their destiny. Secondly, my hope is that their self esteem and respect for all people are nurtured in the process.
