I finally signed up for PAT'S RUN! It's funny how some things are just meant to be, I was meant to run this race! No... really... I was, just listen! This is a fundraiser race in memory of Pat Tillman. The Pat Tillman Foundation gives back to military families and veterans. Pat had a passion for his family, football and his country. He was a star football player at ASU (Whoop Whoop). He went on to play in the NFL for the AZ Cardinals. Pat gave up his professional football career to join military as an Army Ranger. While deployed to Afghanistan, Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire during a fire-fight. He died serving the country he loved so much. It is an awesome fundraiser for an awesome cause and I am proud to be a US Army Veteran myself.
Why should I run this race?.. Because we are sooooo much alike its crazy!
