I'm a 52-year old guy who was inspired to start running by my brother Tom a few years ago. That's Tom and me in one of the pictures after he ran the Boston Marathon as a qualified runner in 2011.
I'm running the Boston Marathon in 2012 in honor of my brother-in-law, Michael Kimball, who died when he as 52 of ocular melanoma (skin cancer of the eye). Mike left behind five kids plus extended family and many friends. He was an accomplished amateur runner, frequently finishing at the top of his age category in local races in New Hamsphire and southern Maine.
Mike started the Boston Marathon twice, but did not finish. I plan to finish for him in 2012. Wish me luck, and if you can, help me raise money to fight the cancer that felled Mike and many others.
