Matt the Running Musician!
I've chosen to run for Concordia because supporting Concordia is a cause worth running for.
In 2012 I ran my first half-marathon. Upon completing the half, it became a fitness goal of mine to complete a full marathon. In 2013 I began training to run a full marathon. Over the course of training I was able to complete up to an 18 mile long run, but stopped my training just short of the 20 mile run experts say should be completed before running a full marathon. I wasn't able to finish because I wasn't running for anything. I was just running to be in shape. I wasn't accountable to anyone but my own self-motivation.
I'm running with a team of people that want to see the world a better place and are using their own personal fitness goals to do so! It's a win-win for us all! Please be a supporter for Concordia and for those that strive to be better in Body - Mind - and - Soul!
