Changing lives one mile at a time....

Welcome to My Training/Fundraising page. Some of you were here through my last journey...thanks for coming back.

As some of you know, Eric and I completed the 2008 adidas Dublin Marathon in October. We raised over $12,000 together for LLS. But the battle isn't over...

Last season we lost one of my Honored Heroes, Maria Anna. She was only 2 years old. She was LLS' 2008 Girl of The Year.

I am still in this fight. In Honor and Memory of beloved friends and family, this time to my hometown of San Diego . On May 31, 2009, I will cross that finish line once more with my honored Heroes at The San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon.

Week 3: I am starting to feel more back-in-the-swing of things. 4 miles and I did it in less than an hour, YEAH for me! The fundraising clinic went over well. I have some ideas to run with on my own as well as some to do with my mentor team.

Week 2: Today was 3 miles in Edmond. The weather here is so crazy. Too many layers today. I guess I will check the weather report before hand next week!

Week 1: Went for a 2 mile trek downtown, in the freezing cold! I thought my face was going to fall off!! I met with some of the mentees afterward and brainstormed about fundraising.
