What have you done lately to give back? So much of running is about focusing on yourself, your goals and how to become a better, healthier runner or self. It's important to take a step back at least every once and while and focus on the athletic community around you rather than yourself. More specifically, focus on those who are not quite as fortunate as you, or don't have the access that you have or the knowledge that you do. Share your wisdom or your volunteer your time or donate a dollar or two.
This year, Citi has made giving back as easy and one, two, three with their Every Step of the Way Program (http://citi.us/1ek5E7S ). Nine U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Nine programs in need. A $500,000 donation from Citi. And they are asking us (as in you) to help decide where it goes with just a click. While you're deciding how you personally want to give back, find inspiration by learning about each of the programs Team Citi's athlete's support in the video below. And don't forget to choose which program you want to support too!
