Hello everyone! First off thank you for visiting my page. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a registered nurse at St. Lukes Medical Center in Milwaukee, have 2 chubby bulldogs (Betsy and Einstein), and have a wonderful supportive wife. I got into running about 4 years ago now, at the time my goal was to work myself up to running a marathon. This year will be my third year of running in the Chicago Marathon. I havent done any other marathons other than the Chicago, but have run in some halfs. I just love that atmosphere that is around Chicago on race weekend, it is something that I wish everyone could experience. The last two years have been special and so will this year. Being able to run for charity, Project Purple, just makes the whole experience and reaching the finish line that much more rewarding. I am running for pancreatic cancer because unforunately our family expereinced a loss of family member due to pancreatic cancer. It was my wife's grandmother and the easiest way of putting it is..... cancer sucks! She was a kind hearted woman, who loved to have a good time. I will be running a little harder for her and for those who are or have experienced pancreatic cancer in their lives. I am setting a goal of $1,500 that I want to raise for Project Purple. Any amount would be great and going towards a good cause of pancreatic cancer awareness. Thank you again for your time!
