It's been a long time goal of mine to run a marathon. With help from some really amazing people and perfect timing I recently got entry into the 2017 Boston Marathon, the holy grail of all Marathons. The training and 26.2 miles represents more than just a medal - its reaching my personal goals, and having the ability to make an impact on a disease that affects most of us at some point in our own or loved one's life. I'm also thrilled to be able to make a mark on my new city and run this surrounded by my family. I'm asking for any support you can give to help me as I run my first marathon and reach my $8.3k goal (!!) Thank you for your support in advance, and even if you can't financially assist me a simple prayer for healthy training is always appreciated.
I will be documenting my training on my site - so feel free to visit that too -> My Site!
