Welcome to this support page and I'm extremely excited to share the following information and clarificaiton with you. Please don't hesitate reaching out if you have any questions at all, my cell number is 573-301-0944 and it's always on me... unless I'm running.
I will be running a few miles (121.2 to be exact) this year for Imerman Angels, an amazing Cancer Support Organization. Reality proves most of us have been touched by cancer in some way through friends, family and personal experiences. You can find out all about Imerman Angels in the links below, and I would be honored giving you an opportunity to support Team IA directly by donating to my running page.
Seeing as I turn 24 this year, it makes sense that I ask for a donation of $24, but ANYTHING at all is incredibly appreciated! I will be thinking of you while in pain and pushing through my first ultra-marathon and marathon this year!
You're probably wondering where all 121.2 miles are coming from so below is the breakdown:
RAGNAR Trail (15 miles) - Zion, Utah. April 24-26, 2014
Tryon Farm 50 km (30 miles) - Indiana. May 17, 2014
Leadville Silver Rush 50 mile - July 13, 2014* - Due to an non-interesting knee injury, I had to take a raincheck on my Leadville registration for 2014. Don't worry I'll be making up these miles coming soon in the Fall and Winter.
Berlin Marathon (still 26.2 miles) - Sept. 28, 2014
*The Leadville 50 mile Silver Rush race was competed in by Joey Zeman. Joey is a student at UCM and most of all an incredible guy who is willing to push himself and support Imerman Angels in the process. This will be his first Ultra-marathon and I can guarantee you he will be one to attack the trails with a ferocious determination that is inspiring to us all. Joey took on Leadville and made it 43 grueling miles before getting pulled off the course due to injury.
