Why am I doing this you ask? Simple story. Girl meets boy, Boy meets girl who has run 10 marathons, multiple triathons, and completed One Ironman competition. It is time for Boy to have a story of his own.
I have always wanted to run a marathon and was looking to spice things up. As an added bonus, I am helping raise money for the American Cancer Society in honor of two great men. First my dad, Jerry Hershenson, who passed away from Colon Cancer several years ago. Second, Dr. Jeff Kanner, who past away a year ago from Multiple Myloma. Both men had a huge impact on my life, so I dedicate this run to them, since they both had to climb lots hurdles during their treatment.
As I cross the finish line, I will be thinking of them. Please give. It would really be an honor and a great way to support a fantastic organization.
