San Francisco Marathon 2012

THE STORY:

I'm so happy to be running in the San Francisco Marathon on July 29, 2012 to raise money for the California State Summer School Arts Foundation. Arts education develops a vital part of the brain and the character of a child that simply cannot be developed any other way. Which is why its so tragic that arts education has been cut so much in these difficult times. And its so tragic that so many Arts summer schools have gone by the wayside. But CSSSA has survived and is thriving, thanks to incredible leadership and an astonishing but relatively small group of substantial financial supporters.  My dream in running for CSSSA is to have many more people step up to support CSSSA, even at the $5 and $10 level. Check out CSSSA.org.

I took up running age 50 as a way to try to control my weight and to stave off the bad side of aging. Many said I couldn't  run due to my right knee. I have a medical condition that causes my knee to periodically swell and get painful and stiff. I own a crutch which I use at these times. But I proved them wrong when I trained for and ran two marathons in 2011. Determination saw me to the finish lines in both cases. Definitely not natural running ability. I also draw tremendous inspiration thinking about the lives I am helping to change for the better through my running. Please do support me! Thank you!
