On October 11th, in Susanville, CA, Alanis Morissette is going to run the Biz Johnson Trail Marathon to raise money for the National Eating Disorders Association.
I don't know if you've see Alanis lately but she is kicking ass. Last year she started a new health regime, which focused on changing her diet and her lifestyle. While training for the marathon and changing her relationship with food, she decided to share this information with others and pair up with the NEDA. Through her run (it's 26.2 miles!), she hopes to raise awareness to the complex love/hate relationship we have with food, exercise, and our body.
The NEDA is a non-profit organization based in the Pacific Northwest that provides support to both individuals and families affected by eating disorders, as well as advocate for the prevention, treatment, and research of them.
Alanis, I have never done a marathon but I have heard it can be one hell of an intense experience. I just know you'll rock it.
