Yes, I Do Have Heart

I’ve run the Lawyers Have Heart 10K many times, even though last year was the first year since they changed the course to an out-and-back route that I didn’t *hate* it. There is something about the time of year (mid-June) and the route (everyone agrees that the last mile in the blazing sun on the Whitehurst Freeway is brutal) that makes this 10K much harder than any 10 mile training run. But I am a lawyer, and I do have heart, so I keep running–especially when my law firm decides to pay for our entry fee!

This year is the first year that I am doing fundraising for this event, to raise money to support the American Heart Association, whose mission is “building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.”

Many of you know that I lost my Dad to heart failure this year, so this event holds special meaning for me now.

According to the Lawyers Have Heart website, for every $1 raised through Lawyers Have Heart, 88 cents is used to fund the American Heart Association’s mission.

The American Heart Association is the largest source of non-governmental funding for cardiovascular research in the country.

If any of these reasons sound good to you, please go to my my fundraising page and donate early and often!

Thanks for your support!

      I will be tweeting my fundraising page over the next few weeks.

      Hopefully I won't lose any followers, but if I do, good riddance I guess. 😛
