In June of 2011 my mother in law passed away after a brutal but brief battle with cancer. It is a devastating loss and we miss her terribly. In December I will be running my 3rd California International Marathon, something that would not be possible without Mary Anne. Training for my first CIM was grueling; physically, mentally and emotionally. It took help. Whenever I called, she was there to give support. Whether it was last minute babysitting so I could squeeze in a few more miles, or encouragement when I felt like quitting, or sharing the joy of my accomplishments, I knew I could depend on her without hesitation. I ran that first marathon for me and now I'm running this one for her. I'm raising money for the Fisher House Travis Airforce. They work with injured vets, keeping family close during the recovery period, free of cost. 100% of the money they receive goes to the vets. Mary Anne worked very closely with veteran charities in the last years of her life and I'd like to continue that legacy. Please help me honor Mary Anne by donating. Thanks!
