THE STORY:

UPDATED!

Ivana never got angry at anything or anyone. With her memory in mind, I'm not setting out to kick cancer's ass, but rather honour her and raise money for the scholarship created in her memory, as well as the American Cancer Society. Before she passed away, she created a bucket list. One of the items on her list was to run a marathon, and I promised i'd help her train and ultimately, run her first 26.2 miles. Tragically, she passed away before this goal was achieved. Ivana always kept her promises, so it's only fair I keep this one to her. With that in mind, I will be running a 50 mile race in May 2014 to raise money for the American Cancer Society, the charity Ivana rasied money for during the Walk For Life in Santa Clarita.

****record scratch****

Right. So. Life made other plans regarding my running career this summer. Looks like in lieu of 50 miles, I will be running 4 half marathons to ensure the safety of my impending baby belly. Still two marathons folks! And now... i really AM running for two.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming....

****

Why 50 miles? The distance is a little shy of two back to back marathons - one for me, one for her. I will run an extra two miles following the official race to make sure I complete 52 miles (two full marathons) and those who would like to join me for this portion are welcome to come and walk, jog, or sprint these last two miles in honour of Ivana or anyone they have lost to cancer.

Let's do what we can to make sure no one ever misses out on their bucket list because of cancer.
