THE STORY:

Last year I was told that I might not be able to run any more. I had two surgery for bunions and a few other foot related issues in March and June of 2014.  Three days before my first surgery I ran my first half.  I was addicted.  Recovery was tough but I kept thinking back to my first half marathon and worked hard to get back into it.  I have been running one half marathon a month since January and am hoping to continue this through the end of the year.  Provided everything works out, the Route 66 Half Marathon will be my 11th half for this year.  I am ecstatic to reach this point and will continue to plow through with amazing friends and family at my side.  In addition to this goal comes the reason for this post— I have a chance to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  This is a close to home disease. My brother has type 1 diabetes along with several other family friends.  This disease has changed our life but I am so happy to say it has never held my brother back.  He is amazing and won’t let diabetes be an excuse for ANYTHING! This is the smallest thing I can do.  Diabetes is a disease that is a daily, hourly, minute by minute disease that doesn’t just go away by losing weight or changing a diet. My brother is in fantastic shape but he still has to check his blood sugar several times a day, deal with pump changes and the life diabetes causes.  It can be dealt with but there is no cure.  One day it is my hope that he will no longer have a pump attached to him, that he will no longer have to think about what he eats on a different level from many other people, that he will no longer have to remember how much insulin he has remaining, and that he will no longer have to remember every single thing that diabetes causes people and families to think about.  One day there will be a CURE and any little bit will help to reach that.  So, as I work towards running my 11th half marathon for 2015 I will be running for my brother and everyone else we know who battles this crappy disease.  If you want to donate please do but do not feel obligated to do this.  Thank you for your support, and diabetes, you SUCK!
