Ann was my Nana, my mom's mother. She suffered a stroke when I was a kid but I still have very fond memories of her. I remember that I was always her offcial wheeler and would push her wherever she needed to go in her wheelchair. I am running to benefit the American Stroke Foundation in her memory. Hopefully on the day of the marathon she will be there to help push me where I need to go, the finish line :-)
I complete my long runs on Saturday's. I plan on donating $1 for every mile I run on Saturday from now until the day I run the LA Marathon. I encourage anyone willing to help to do the same.
Follow me on twitter @surfer2124 or facebook.com/rundommerrun to track my progress...
Keep and eye out for me on race day if you're in the crowd, I'll have the initals AM on the back of my leg.
