Robin-Christine wrote about a group called "I run for Micheal" so I checked it out. I liked what I read and signed Lina up for a runner, less than 24 hours later she was matched with her runner. They are a closed group so you have to request to join. The runners run for disabled persons no matter what age or disability.
I am writing about this because I was reading some of the posts on the group page and saw that there is a man that is excited because he was just moved up to #690 on the waiting list to be matched up with a buddy. I thought that there might be a few of you in this group that would find this interesting and your little ones might like having a pen pal/computer pal I guess it what you'd call it now.
I set up a page for Lina & Me so that it can have higher privacy settings since she is on there. Her runner is a young lady who has been waiting for a buddy to come along. She posted about how she was excited to have finally gotten a buddy. Lina is excited about having a buddy. So every night before bed we go over all the posts that her runner makes during the day and Lina is going to tell me what she wants to say.
I saw on there where some people run just for the pleasure of it most run in marathons of some kind and there were a few that wrote about the training they are doing for triathalon's. These people are really dedicated and passionate not only to their sport but to their buddies too. It was wonderful to read what some of the pairs were writing to each other.
I hope some of you can check this out.
