Campaign: 2020 Detroit Marathon
Team: 2020 MI Eastside - Detroit Marathon

Carrie Mcguire

This year has challenged us all in different ways. It's been emotionally, physically and mentally exhausting. We've all adapted to new ways of living and I'd say at the end of the day - everyone is doing the best they can.

I continue to find mental refuge and physical renewal through running. But in all honesty, it's been a real struggle this year. Lots of talking myself into getting out there and keeping on keeping on. There have been many, many days that I just wanted to quit.

But I continue. Not at my peak running performance. Not 'marathon ready' most likely. But ready to give it my all and try my best when I hit the trails in a couple weeks to support a cause that remains so important.

Now, more than ever, we need to support good in the world - a world so desperately in need of more love, more positivity, more happiness, more peace. I support this cause because the world is a better place because of it. Thanks for your interest and consideration in supporting this effort.
