Once again this year I will be #runningwiththeRabbi to raise money for The House.
Why The House? Very simply, no one engages, inspired and impacts Jewish youth like the House. Led by Rabbi Raffi Lipner, they connects to Jews across the religious and political spectrum and really is a model for what others can do inspire within their own communities.
Why running? 5K is no marathon, but as I've learned from running a marathon, the journey starts with 5K. My first 5K run got me hooked on running and in reality, I'd like to say it saved or at least prolonged my life. It was a wake-up call that years of ashkezani food and a completely sedentary lifestyle was killing me. I wanted to be active, healthy and have the energy to spend quality time with my family and kids.
If you haven't already, I strongly encourage you to get off the couch and run. 5 min or 5k, or whatever, take the plunge or better yet, run or support me in the Yorkville 5K
