What a terrific year! Thank you so much to all my supporters. So far AADAP has raised over $38,000 and we may hit $40,000. I finished my 4th Marathon. Running the LA Marathon is so rewarding. I feel better about myself, I raise some money for AADAP and brings me closer to some terrific people. Lauren was partner this year and truly help me get through this year. My mantra since I started marathon training has been to, "run steady" and you will get there. So far it has been working.

About the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon:
Stadium to the Sea.
Say just those four words, and runners across the United States will immediately
know what you•re referring to: the iconic course of the ASICS LA Marathon, which is set for its 31st edition on February 14, 2016.
The ASICS LA Marathon has always been about much more than an invitational race for elite runners over the city’s streets. Since its inception in 1986, it has offered opportunities for involvement for athletic expression at all levels, for giving back to the community and for celebrating the unique nature of the communities all over the Los Angeles region.
In 2010, Marathon charities set an all-time record of $2 million in donations. The
enormous success led to the creation of the Marathon’s Charity Challenge, which
called upon fundraisers to set a new record of $3 million in donations in 2011.
Contributions passed the $1 million mark in mid-February 2011, the earliest date
ever, and charities ultimately reached the $3 million mark for that year’s race. For
the 2012 race, total charity contributions reached $3,023,326 and in 2013 the
numbers continued to rise, with all-time high charity participation totaling over 70
charities raising over 3.1 million dollars.
