It’s summertime here in Alaska, and the weather will make you want to go out and run.
My first experience
I’m not an athletic person. But last June, I realized that I should take advantage of my good health.
I may be unable to run for long for now, but I can confidently say that I managed to reach 5 miles at least before lunch.
This run serves two great purposes: exercising my body and providing awareness of breast cancer and women’s health.
I think the reason why I enjoyed my first run is that I know that I am not only helping myself but also the people who survived and still suffering from a surgical illness.
The Alaska Run for Women is held every 2nd week of June.
Besides running, they also do raffle draws and a few interesting activities like Zumba, Bouncy House, obstacle course, and face painting!
Free food and refreshments are also offered during and after the run.
If you are interested to know more about the run, you can check out their website here.
Running isn’t something that I thought of doing.
But joining the event for the Alaska Run For Women made me think twice.
What made me motivated to run is that I wasn’t only helping myself grow physically, but I was also of help to others.
