Our team, Blood, Sweat & Beers is doing the Spartan Sprint at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut on June 28, 2014. I wanted to make this experience as rewarding as possible, so I want to share with everyone my personal motivation for doing well in this race. My grandfather who was always so proud of my focus on health and fitness, lost his battle with lung cancer in May. Since then I have focused on continuing to grow as an athlete, and do whatever I can to support lung cancer prevention and research. I am hoping to raise as much as possible in the limited time we have to help support the Lung Cancer Research Foundation.
