In the lead-up to the 26.2-mile race, Cassidy will be posting training updates on her website and Instagram pages. In addition, Cassidy will be raising awareness and money for Safe Haven Family Shelter of Nashville, a non-profit organization that provides shelter to homeless families. Cassidy’s Crowdrise.com page, where you can make a donation, has already raised more than $6,000 for Safe Haven.
Cassidy shared a lengthy post at Crowdrise.com about how important running has been to her since moving to Nashville 11 years ago, saying, in part: “It’s hard to overestimate how important running has been to me in the last decade. It helped me transition through so many life changes and adjustments, most of all to being a parent. Its given me time to myself that I need but don’t often get. It’s been both a meditative exercise and an escape, a way to be more present in my life and also a way to just zone out from it all when I needed to. I owe a lot to running.”
Good luck, Cassidy. We’ll be rooting for you.
