I'm making my second go at the NYC Marathon. Last time, in 2009, it was a bucket list thing. This time, I'm running for a reason: To contribute to the fight against prostate cancer.
My father in law, Larry Bristol, one of the finest men I know, has been fighting prostate cancer for the better part of the last ten years. In the last two or three years, that fight has taken on an increased level of intensity. My family has been side by side with Larry as he endures a multitute of treatments. We want him to know that we are there with him, but we are amazed and inspiried by his strength and his spirit. He motivates us to live, love and take a greater appreciation of the world and people around us.
It is with that spirit that I plan on running the New York City Marathon this year. I'm afraid however, that the 26.2 miles will be the easy part. In order for me to run, I need to raise $3000 for the Zero Prostate Cancer team. Zero Prostate Cancer is a charity with a pretty amazing goal - to completly irradicate prostate cancer. It's a goal I am inspiried to help acheive.
I won't be able to with out the help of my family and friends.
