EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I swore after my third marathon that I would never run one again. Well, here I am training for the Pittsburgh Marathon coming up on May 1st. On my first day of training, I got a wonderful winter day to spray my beard with icicles. See main picture :)
My most recent marathon was the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C. and I raised money for the Susan G. Komen foundation in honor of my aunt who passed away from breast cancer. The process of fundraising, training, and running with others in mind made the experience 100 times better. This time, I am raising money for the Mario Lemieux Foundation which supports the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I have known so many patients in the hospital and people in my close circle who have battled with various forms of either disease.
If everyone we knew on social media even donated $1, that would be insane! I'll be keeping everyone updated! Thanks! :)
