I'm going to cross something off of my Bucket List.
The Inaugural Ainsley's Angels Half Marathon will happen on Sunday, October 18th, 2015.
This amazing run will take place on October 18, 2015 at 7:30 AM in the Jay B. Starkey Park, 10500 Wilderness Park Blvd., Newport Richie, FL 34655

Why am I doing this?

Well, I'm a little bit insane. What 200lb+ woman tries to run 13.1 miles.
(That would be me)

But this benefits Ainsley's Angels. And as far as running goes,
they are 2nd in my heart just below I Run 4
