October 4th 2014!!!
I'm not sure where the desire to compete in a Marathon came from but it's here and the only way I know how to fulfill the itch is to compete in one. I told myself that if I ever competed in a Marathon I wanted to try to qualify for Boston. The time to qualify is 3:05. It's quite a goal, but that's why we set them. They are supposed to test us and make us strive for something we never thought we could do. I signed up for the lottery for the Chicago Marathon, being a relatively flat course and a familiar city for me; I thought this would give me the best chance to accomplish my goal. I unfortunately didn't get a spot in the lottery so now I've partnered with the American Red Cross to raise money for them for a spot in the race. I’m raising $1500 for them. This is a small price, considering all they have done for me. One of my first jobs was as a lifeguard. Without the Red Cross, that job and all the great times over 8yrs at the Macon County Rec Park Pool would've never happened.
I hope you will help me in achieving my goal. Thank you in advance for your support.
