I have been inspired by all of the stories of courage and strength, and saddened by the stories of loss that cancer has brought to so many lives. It is an important goal of mine to get out there and do something to make a difference, because I can. To run a marathon is a goal I have had for a long time and I am proud to be fundraising for the team Expect Miracles/Financial Services Against Cancer. So, when people ask, “Why a marathon? Why all the training?” I simply respond, “Why not?” I am running and fundraising to make a difference, because I can.
