Dear Future Buddy

Dear Future Buddy,

I am anxiously waiting to be paired with you through a foundation called I Run 4. It matches runners with special need children or adults to provide inspiration and awareness for their disease. I am number 2099 on the waiting list, so it might be a little while 🙂

There is a special lady that I met thorough social media, Jodi, that has inspired this! Her posts on Facebook for her buddy, Neveah, are so sweet and give hope to the family and give her a reason to run! She recently just made a very long journey to meet her match! It was so sweet to see them meet! I hope to meet you too one day!

I can’t wait to be matched with you. I can’t wait to run for you. No matter where you are, girl or boy, young or old… You are already special to me. I’ve got a lot of running planned this year, including my first full marathon. Are you ready to carry me for 26.2 miles?!?! I’m convinced we can do this together!

I do not understand the journey that you are on, nor the journey that lies ahead of you, but I know that you are special to God! I know my miles are not many, but if they can be an inspiration to you I’m ready to run them all for you!

I only started running last year, but I have fallen in love with running. Last year I ran 22 races and just over 400 miles. This year my goal is 550 miles! I’m a little nervous about meeting my goal, but I’m sure we can do it together!!! I’ve heard the wait for runners to be matched is nine weeks – worth the wait and until then, I’m dedicating my miles to you – my future IRUN4 Buddy!

Here’s to an amazing 2014 of running!

Love,
Jessica
