I have been running lately, running a lot more than I have ever run. I even participated in the Finish at the 50 5K at the Gillette Stadium in July. If you would have asked me a few years ago to run, I would've said no as I shoved another cookie in my mouth. I have to admit that you are who you surround yourself with. My fiance has been on this fitness kick for the past 2 years, and I have joined him, a little slower than him but I'm right behind him enjoying every minute of it. Check out #Pena5K on social media to see photos of us running, as well as #100SummerMiles to see how many miles Kendwy and I have under our belt.

I'm running another 5K this October, and this one is extra important for me as it is for a very good cause, my future brother in law, a US Army Veteran, is coordinating it with the help of others, and the cause hits close to home. It is the Boston Wounded Veteran's run. The proceeds will help veterans who have been wounded in combat. I have cousins and brothers in all of the military branches. Two brothers in the Air Force, two cousins in the Navy, another in the Army. Some are still serving, others are Veterans, including my future brother in law, Marvin.
