My Commitment To The Race To Fill The Pantry

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.
