Find Your Greatness.

Somehow, we’ve come to believe that “greatness” is reserved for the chose few. For the superstars. The truth is, greatness is for all of us.

Last year, I wrote down a bunch of random goals with the aim of challenging myself any way I could. One of them was a physical challenge; to train for a marathon (or a half-marathon, as long as I didn't kill myself). I never considered myself much of a "runner" so completing either of them was going to be monumental for me. Well, I was able to cross off the half-marathon off my list, but didn't feel like I was really ready to take on the monster.

This year, I'm ready.

I have officially decided to run the 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! I have never been more nervous/excited/ready to shit myself. Unfortunately, I was not able to make it in through the marathon's lottery program, so I decided to go the charity route. I am going to be running for T2 - The Team To End Aids! It is great, Chicago-based charity that helps to protect against the transmission of HIV/AIDS and also provides care to those living with it (seriously, read all about it).

So here's where you come in...

As a part of the marathon entry with a charity, I am required to fundraise. For my charity, I have a goal of $1,700 (yeah, that number scares the hell out of me too). SO...I NEED YOUR HELP! I need your help to raise money for a good cause, and help me truly cross off a life goal of mine. I know that this won't be an easy task, am I am not good at asking for help, but I know I can't do this alone!

Oh, and I forgot, as a part of this, I am designing a few pieces that I plan to give to donors! To anyone that donates more than $75 or more will receive 1 of 3 limited-edition lettering prints from yours truly! And to anyone that donates $30 or more will receive a lettered postcard as a token of my deepest appreciation! I will share what these pieces are in the upcoming weeks! 

So that's it. I really need your help Remember, every dollar counts! DONATE HERE and let's do this together!
