"You can't do everything at once. But you can do something at once." - Calvin Coolidge

Like so many of you, I have watched so many family and friends battle leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, myeloma, and blood cancers.

I can't do the lifesaving research to cure this family of diseases.

I can't take away the heartache of those who are fighting it.

But I can use the gift of my good health to support those who are working for a cure, and help improve the quality of life for those who are suffering.

So I will be running the 2013 Boston Marathon with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training to help and honor my loved ones who are battling this disease, those who have beat it, and those who have succumbed to it and the millions of others who are newly diagnosed each day.

My goal is to raise $4,000 by January 31, 2013.

This will be my 45th marathon or ultra, and my 7th time covering the vaunted 26.2 miles between Hopkinton to Boston's Back Bay.

But I know that it will be a race like no other.

Please help me use my good health for a greater good.

Thank you for your support.
