Well they say 3rd times a charm.... so I am running my 3rd full marathon for TEAM IN TRAINING to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I'm coming home to run BOSTON!!!! On April 18th, 2011 I will be running another 26.2 miles!


I am running this marathon in memory of my close friend Jaclyn Spellman who has lost her battle to Acute Myeloid Leukemia at the young age of 25. "Jax" was the most determined person I knew but unfortunately her strength couldn't over take the challenges of the harsh treatments that are associated with the terrible blood cancer. Jackie and I had plans to run Boston together - so I am keeping my promise and making her proud!


I am also running in memory of my grandmother, Mia McMahon, who was another strong lady who lost her battle this past July. Mia was faced with both Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia and breast cancer, which she battled for years in and out of remission. When I flew home this past summer for her services it was amazing to hear so many people say, " I never even knew Mia was sick." That's the type of person she was. She went on with her day to day life, volunteering, being a strong member of her church community and continuing her passion of traveling the world. It was at the very end that it had become too much, and her fight was over.


Cancer is all around us and I am trying to make a difference by raising money and helping doctors and families find a cure! Combined in my past two marathons I have raised over $11,000, and look forward in raising more. I have committed to raising a minimum of $3,250 for Boston, but hope to raise as much as possible!


Thank you, again, for your continued support. I look forward in seeing many faces along the course in Boston and at the finish line on Boylston!!!



Courtney :-)
