I decided that I want to run in the Long Branch Trick or Trot on October 23, 2011. The proceeds benefit homeless animals at the Monmouth County SPCA. The organization is close to my heart because we adopted our first "baby," our evil cat Spyder, from them almost seven years ago. I love the animals and supporting no-kill shelters like the Monmouth County SPCA. I am going to do it! The only catch is that this is not a 5K race (3.1 miles). Instead, the Long Branch Trick or Trot is a four mile race. To quote Dan, "See this? I got this." I can do it, and I'm going to do it. Who is with me? For more information on the race, see the listing on Jersey Runner here.
