We may live in a digital world, but sometimes it just feels good to put pen to paper, particularly when it comes to setting goals. Róisín “Ro” McGettigan, a Providence resident and PC alum and fellow professional runner Lauren “Lo” Fleshman have created the Believe I Am Training Journal for this very reason, as they have seen, first hand, a training journal’s power in helping set and achieve personal goals. The journal features motivational musings and cheeky designs by the creators themselves. “Each section is illustrated, written and crafted with a great deal of heart and sincerity,” says McGettigan.
We often take for granted the fact that we can move. Unfortunately, there are many people who can’t because of a disease called ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive motor neurone disease that robs people of the ability to move their muscles. On Saturday, March 3 from 5-7pm, The Mardi Gras Multi Club in Cranston will host a United We Dance to Cure ALSTM Zumbathon to benefit MDA’s Augie’s Quest, a non-profit research initiative dedicated to finding treatments and cures for ALS. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. For more information, email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org.
