OMG! It has been for...ever since I have blogged! The marathon was AWESOME! In spite of complete and total chaos, we raised $6000 to be donated to local shelters! Some of the money went to food and clothes for the women and kids, some went to shelter expenses and some went to gym memberships for the lovely ladies. One of the main focuses of OMO2F is to teach women how to respect their bodies and get healthly so that they are more likely to demand the respect they deserve and get away from abusive relationships. We have to take some of the responsibility onto ourselves. We can't change the assholes. But, we can respect ourselves enough to get away from them. You can't expect people to treat you good if you don't take care of yourself. Blah, blah, blah...you get the point.
In other news, Melissa Terwilliger is the new Assistant Race Director. She is an amazing ultrarunner (she won 024 and placed 5th USATF at BR100 this year!) and an amazing person. She is one of my favorite people on this planet, so I am super excited to have her on board for the up coming year.
Stay posted for news on OMO2F marathon 2013. The date will be April 20th and the course will be different, but still hills, suckas! We are NOT changing it to make it easier, so suck it up and start training!
