Episode 6: Just for J 5K Pre-Race Warmup

Finally time for a new podcast! I will be travelling to state #9 of my journey – Colorado! I found an incredible race and charity to run for in Denver – The Just for J 5k. This race is to fight Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT). Jacqueline was diagnosed with the disease at 4 years old. She has an extreme version of it. But, she has a strong spirit, and is very inspirational. So, check out this podcast to find out more about the disease, and about this great event that is coming up on Saturday, July 21, 2018 in Denver Colorado.
We have a huge guest list on this show:

Amanda Dyer (Jacqueline’s mom, and co-founder of Just for J)
Amanda Borg (co-founder of Just for J)
Sarah Miller (Benefit Coordinator)
Rayna Anderson (Director of Community Outreach)
Jacqueline (J)
Patrick (Jacqueline’s brother)
McKenzie (Jacqueline’s sister)
