I am running a a progressive set of races (beginning with a 5K up to a marathon) in Derek Boogaard's memory, a hockey player with a generous heart, and one of DTBL's greatest supports, who died too soon. (http://www.defendingtheblueline.org/our-team/partners-donors/derek-boogaard-memorial/)
Here's why I'm running: http://fanvsfan.com/articles/running-for-the-boogeyman
I ran my first 5K on July 4, 2012. Next up is another 5K in September. If training goes well, I'l run a 10K instead
