Kerrigan, the three year old daughter of an amazing friend whom I've known since elementary school, is battling Cystic Fibrosis. There is some serious fight in this child: think Ali taking down George Foreman at the Rumble in the Jungle and then multiply that by 100,000. That's what a brave kick-ass warrior-ess Kerrigan is. Since I am running the NYC Marathon this weekend, and since Kerrigan's family could use some help with travel and medical expenses for her increasingly complex care, I hope to use my position as a competitor in NYC on 11/3 to help out my hero Kerrigan. With every step and breath through the 5 boroughs, I will think of Kerrigan and push through to the finish.
