McKeen Law Firm, LLC is proud to sponsor the Glastonbury River Runner’s “Race to Fill the Pantry” on November 10, 2013. The Glastonbury River Runners are a fantastic organization. Sponsoring this race is a small way to give back to the Glastonbury River Runners and Glastonbury.
$5 from every registration fee will be donated to the Glastonbury Food Bank. Participants are also asked to donate a non-perishable food item, such as canned vegetables or soup, boxed stuffing etc. In 2012, the Glastonbury River Runners were able to donate $1900 to the town Food Bank, right in time for Thanksgiving.
Running is a celebration of life. This year, I resolved to run at least one mile every day of the year. Today, I have run 262 days in a row and am on pace to go 365 for 365. I’m fortunate to be healthy and nourished.
Maintaining the streak has been difficult. Somedays, I have been sick. Others, I have been tired. Somedays, I don’t want to run.
Yet the simple goal of running one mile a day has helped me through a difficult year. Setting aside ten minutes to think without distraction, get some fresh air, and move has helped me get through a lot of stress.
In the spirit of giving thanks, I’m pledging to donate 1 non-perishable food item for every day of my run streak. If my streak is alive on November 10th, I’m going to donate 365 non-perishable food items at the race.
I hope to see you at the Race To Fill The Pantry. The Glastonbury River Runners put on a fantastic event.
