As many of you know, I recently started training for a 10K (which is 11/8) and a 15K (which is 12/14). You may also know that my son and I are not affected by the Hay Wells Syndrome of Ectodermal Dysplasia, which affects our ability to sweat properly.
Yesterday I registered my family if five to participate in the Huxman Run 2 Sweat Virtual Run, which benefits the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasia (NFED). The NFED is near and dear to my heart. They have been a source of information, support, and comfort for as long as I can remember.
I ran my 5K this morning.
Training to run a 10K and a 15K when you don’t sweat properly can be challenging, to say the least. But, it’s not impossible. And if I can run 5K, I would think many others could, too!
You can run to support the NFED, as well. Registration is easy, and since its a virtual run, you can run (or walk) wherever and whenever you want. You also get a cool technical shirt when you register.
Not interested in running (or walking) 5K? They have a 1 mile option, as well. Or, you can support my family as we complete ours!
What do you say? Can you spare $5 to support us?
