Run For Hope Saturday June 18 At 7am
Singer and songwriter Melissa Etheridge wrote a song, “I Run for Life” that carries more depth and meaning than my occasional obstacle courses and 5k’s. Her song is about the horrors of breast cancer, but also underlines the resiliency of the human spirit. It’s about facing the darkness in life.
This weekend I am stepping into a new arena – triathlons. It’s the opening level to this portal -a sprint class – meaning a quarter mile swim, a twelve mile bike, and a three mile run. Proceeds benefit David’s Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation. Training has been brutal because one does not simply get out of the water and jump on the bike and then get off the bike and run to the finish line …… or do they? As a southern Ocean County realtor, I’m always on call, always looking for new houses on the market for my buyers, always helping my sellers get ready for an open house. I end up training early in the day and late at night, but that’s more about commitment and more about one’s character I think – because these are the choices I make.
So as Saturday and my first triathlon looms near, the lyrics by Melissa Etheridge play in my head reminding me that my race is significant – to me, to cancer, to my community.
“I run for hope. I run to feel,
I run for the truth for all that is real,
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife,
For you for me my friend,
I run for life.”
