26.2 for Mom

I will have days when I don't know if I can run a marathon.
I will have a lifetime knowing that I have.

I have been waiting until my legs decided that they can endure 26.2 miles. And... now that I am almost done with the most intense part of my training, I want to invite you to join me in raising money in honor of my mom!

On May 31st, I will be running the San Diego Rock-n-Roll Marathon. I am using this opportunity to give to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to advance research, support patients, and create hope for all those affected by pancreatic cancer.

I am hoping that you will become a part of this important and exciting experience by adopting one of my miles. If you would like to support my run in honor of my mom, please choose a mile to adopt (the available miles will stay posted on the right side of my blog) and donate a minimum of $50. To do so, simply click on the "26.2 for Mom" button on the right and follow the directions. I know times are tight and if you are unable to adopt a mile, please click anyway and make a donation in any amount. Every little bit makes a difference!

As many of you know, I have been wanting to run a marathon for a long time. Combining my love for running and doing what little I can to fight this devastating disease seemed like a great opportunity. My mom did not just sit back and watch life from the sidelines. She got in there, got involved, and made a difference. She changed people's lives and I know that she will be with me the entire 26.2 miles whispering, "You can do this!"
