BENEFITING: ABCD INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2014
My 10th state. Finally into the double digits. I changed my fundraiser to ABCD (After Breast Cancer Diagnosis) this time because my amazing, athletic, awesome friend Sue Maute lost her 12 year battle with breast cancer on 8/28/14. Until last fall, Sue ran with me at 6am, 2 days a week and kicked my butt at Velocity every Thursday for the last 3 years. I always thought she would be here to encourage me to run another marathon. She had such an amazing attitude that you couldn't feel sorry for her or yourself when you were with her. She played competitive tennis and field hockey. Coached lacrosse and field hockey. Loved to be on the water, kayaking or boating. She worked as a counselor and massage therapist as well. And a mom of 4 great kids. I am sure I left something off but she did it all! I am sure I'll shed a few more tears on this marathon than normal but I will survive. I just wish Sue did.
