I'm running the 2015 NYC marathon with my brother Adam. Both of us are not runners by any stretch of the imagination but we're going to finish this marathon!
We're dedicating this race to our father, Randy, who lost his battle with cancer on January 8, 2014. Our dad fought to the last second and that's what we're going to do to finish the marathon while raising money to support cancer research through the Jimmy V Foundation!
Our Grandma Peterson, our Dad's mother, is running this race right beside us as she battles cancer every single day. Her passion for life and will to survive is what drives me to finish the long practice runs. .
Adam and I will together cross that finish line on November 1 and it will be a celebration of gratitude and thanks driven by our Dad, Grandma Peterson, and small contribution to cancer research.
Thanks for your support! Without the support of our friends and family we could have not made it through everything.
As Jim Valvano, said: "To me there are three things everyone should do every day. Number one is laugh. Number two is think -- spend some time in thought. Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears. If you laugh, think and cry, that's a heck of a day"
