I can thankfully report that I honored my end of the deal. I finished the marathon in 5:45. Not as fast as I wanted, but it's done! See more
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2011
Alzheimer's disease affects 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men over age 85. My grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's, as did my wife's grandfather. Odds are, if you're reading this, you have a relative that has (or is currently) suffering from it as well. Promising developments in genetic analysis point toward hope of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of this disease, but help is needed. What better way to keep myself motivated to train for the Colorado Marathon on May 1st, 2011, than having people make donations to this cause and expecting me to get-r-done?
