Why I’m running for Heart Strides
Ever had a day when it’s hard to put one foot in front of the other? Ever had a week, or years? So many of you know that just to get out of bed in the morning and take care of everyone and everything in your day it takes monumental amounts of physical, emotional and spiritual strength.
