A TALE OF TWO CITIES:
Hello friends, family and/or perfect strangers. I have decided to do something crazy this year, not only run one marathon but two!
On October 8th I will be lacing up my running shoes and running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon then one month later I will do it all over again for the TCS New York City Marathon on November 5th. The only reason I would ever do something so crazy and put my body through so much is for a good cause, make that 2 great causes: Imerman Angels and The American Brain Tumor Association.
On April 18th I lost my Uncle Bill Bain to brain cancer. I will be running, walking and at some point on either course, possibly crawling in his memory. His life was full of light, love and optimism and he was taken from all of us far too soon.
So follow my journey, cheer me on and most importantly donate any amount that you can to help these two incredible organizations.
