Runners To Your Mark…
“If you are a runner, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doens’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get in. You just run.”
Running is determination, perseverance, and strength. It is taking one step at a time, enduring past the pain, and creating something great. Whether you run to get in shape, run for a cause, or run to destress, it is something you can strive to get better at each time you hit the pavement.
With the St. Jude Marathon Weekend coming up in less than 2 months we wanted to highlight some of our awesome doctors and staff that will be participating this year. St. Jude is an amazing organization and last month we helped raise $700 in donations through our Speak Up program. But guess what? There are amazing races for great causes all year long! Whether you run by yourself or with your favorite companion, know you are not alone.
On October 21 the Humane Society of Memphis Shelby County is also hosting a 5K race where you can run with your dog! This is in the beautiful Shelby Farms and is a super fun race for both humans and canines alike.
We would love to hear who of our clients are running this year! We hope to see you there, running so that together we can help end childhood cancer and further awareness. If you can’t run, consider supporting someone running with a donation, a sign, or lots of cookies after the race.
