I will be running the 2016 Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 9!  I am running for Project Purple, they are an amazing charity for raising awareness and funding for pancreatic cancer. My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on June 1, 2015. It was one if the hardest days of my life.  Let me start by saying my mom and dad are the most amazing parents! They adopted my twin sister and I when we were just a few months old. They adopted us when they were in their early 40's and my older sister and brother had already started their own lives! They took a chance on us and supported the both of us every step of the way. My mom was my biggest cheerleader and biggest motivator! Once my mom was diagnosed she created a wish list, one of my mom's wishes was to see me get married. My amazing fiancé Tim agreed, and with the help of family and friends we planned a wedding in just three weeks! It was an amazing day because my mom had a great day, not only physically but pain free! My mom has been my best friend and biggest supporter my entire life!

I signed up for the Chicago Marathon three years ago, ran faithfully daily and did strength training throughout the weeks. My mom supported me daily and told me she was so proud of me! I was unable to complete my training, I had to stop two months before the big day because of a new job. I was devastated, my mom told me not to worry she knew I would run the Chicago Marathon again!

Well Mom, you were right! I am running this year for you! I am going to make you so proud ! I know my mom will be with me the entire way throughout my training and on my big race day ! She will be my angel pushing me every step of the way. Mom, I will be singing/ playing your song, Rachel Platten's, "Fight Song"  during the times that are rough and the days I just want to throw in the towel, but we both know I can't . You fought strong for 10 long months, I will fight for you every mile! I love you and will see you at the finish line!

 

To all my friends and family, My fundraising goal is $1,600! Please, please, please help me and support my goal and Project Purple!
