THE STORY:

I'm often asked in the gym why I work so hard. The answer is BECAUSE I CAN. I spent enough time when I was younger doing less than I was capable of and, quite frankly, I just find that silly. I don't do that anymore. I work hard because I am ABLE to. I am running 26.2 miles on March 18 BECAUSE I CAN.

While my intent is to beat my previous best time, I'd also like to run this year for a cause greater than myself. I chose the Muscular Dystrophy Association for two reasons:

1. Muscular dystrophy is a group of inherited disorders that involve muscle weakness and loss of muscle tissue, which get worse over time.

As I continue to challenge myself and get stronger, so many people are getting weaker and weaker, and there is presently no known cure for the the disorders.

I will run because I CAN, for those people who CANNOT despite the desire to do so.

2. I have had the great pleasure of getting to know Lou Ferrigno as we train at the same gym. We have something in common: we both love to challenge ourselves and our bodies simply because we CAN!

Lou is a supportive, encouraging and kind man. As I thought of a charity to run for, I learned he supports the MDA and I thought it a perfect fit.
