BENEFITING: ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION
ORGANIZER: ALZHEIMERS ASSOCIATION
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Well, here we are again, 2015, another Boston Marathon on the horizon and me procrastinating just long enough before signing-up to be part of the Alzheimer's Association Boston Marathon team.
I know, you usually get this email from me in November, but I'm late, but hey, I have an excuse, I moved across country, have twin girls, a new job, and I put it off. I even put off training a bit. But no more! we start now! Besides, how in the world could I run the marathon without representing something, how boring would that be?
As most of you know and some of the new additions to my email list may not know, I've run on the Alzheimer's Association Boston Marathon Team since 2007. My Grandfather passed away in 1999 from this terrible disease and this is a way for me to honor his memory and be a part of a cause that hopefully finds a cure for this disease. All of the funds we raise as a team go towards research as well as funding caretaker programs and training for those caring for a loved one affected with this disease.
I'll email out tidbits about training, Alzheimer's and general info for those that like that sort of thing. I'll also throw in some training stories and really bore you with how many miles we run etc etc. But just think, it will give you something fun to do on Patriot's Day, April 20th, 2015. You can track me in the race, or better yet, come on out and watch.
I hope everyone is safe, warm and anxiously awaiting spring!
