THE STORY:

This past year, I lost a friend and co-worker to cancer. I ran this year in honor of him and would appreciate any funds we can raise together to fight this horrible disease.

Thank you all for your kind donations.  Together we raised over $2000 for Think Cure!  That is incredible and what a great amount of money to help research and battle cancer that affects far too many of our friends, family, and fellow human beings. 

As an update, I finished the LA Marathon; on this webpage, you can see my race bib and finisher medal that I received when I was all "finished".  This alone was my goal and I can say that your support played a big role in keeping me moving towards the finish line.  Very early on in the race (in Mile 3) my legs began to cramp up and I was feeling the pain that usually doesn't set in until about 19-23 miles in, and I had to motivate myself to stay in the race.  It didn't rain but the weather was exceptionally chilly (47 degrees at the Start line at Dodger Stadium) and windy (10-15 mile an hour winds which made the cold air feel even more brisk); these conditions made the day an even greater challenge. With all that said, it's over and I am now recovering and forever grateful for the monies you helped raise to fight Cancer! 

A co-worker of mine gave me this picture of Jose with a message in Spanish that he will always be in our heart (you can see this photo on my web-page); Jose was an amazing person, with a warm smile, and an incredible work ethic.  It was only fitting that I ran this race in his honor and I know he would be proud of what we did to raise money for Think Cure. 

With much appreciation and love,

 

Darren
