15 days until Honda LA Marathon! I am juiced!
My training has begun to taper with less long runs and more emphasis on injury prevention and physical wellness for race day. The team has been awesome and supportive as race day edges closer.
To my donors I love: Thank you all for your generous donations and support. I really appreciate it with the bottom of my heart. Your act of giving has and will continue to fuel my act to do from here on out until race day and beyond!

LA Marathon is in 37 days!
Finished Surf City Half Marathon at a consistent pace and experienced the real running crowd: 20,000 participants running through Huntington Beach on the first Sunday of a February morning and thousands of spectators cheering.
--It was exhilarating!
Thank you all who have already contributed for the generous support and encouragement! It has kept me running hard with my spirits up. I cannot be where I am today if it wasn't from all your support.
Support my fundraiser and keep me running! Make a donation today and join me in the quest to wipe out cancer!

All right! I'm over $1000. Super happy and thanks for the people that helped out this week for that push! You guys rock! Along with everyone else's support you made my 14 mile run with the team this weekend that much better.
Heads up: I will be running the Surf City Half Marathon in Huntington Beach this February 6 as a warm-up to the LA Marathon. So for you OC people come out and support if you can. It's going to be a big race and a big day for me to experience running with thousands of others participating in anticipation of my actual event in March.
It's getting close and it's going to be exciting. Keep me running harder and with even more determination by making a donation today!

Lacking updates but still running!
Some family stuff came up involving cancer and other medical complications, which by the way gives me a greater incentive to run.
A few weeks back we ran in the pouring rain by the Rose Bowl. Oddly enough, all the mud and water made it the most exciting run yet to date.
Keep me running! Start the New Year fighting cancer and support my fundraiser!

Yes! I'm totally back in the game and running hard. Last week we participated in the 5K Tiger Run hosted by South Pasadena High School, my first official run, and finished 4 minutes faster than my initial 5K time a month earlier. Excited for the improvement considering that I was really sick for one and half weeks the week prior.
Please keep the support coming! I know it's the holidays but isn't that the time for giving? Think about it, you're knocking down two birds with one stone because you're gifting me and you're also gifting those stricken with cancer with additional support.
As usual. I'll keep running
