All,

First I want to thank you for supporting me last year when I took on the LA Marathon. I apologize that I didn't finish the race. The 85 degree heat, my destroyed left knee and my lack of training during an especially rough winter here in NY combined to wear me down. At the 21.2 mile mark, my sister in law begged me to stop and because I love her very much, I did stop.

I have thought about it for a year now and I am ready to finally finish what I started. On March 15th - the Ides of March - I will start and finally finish the LA Marathon in memory of my son and for all the kids he has helped through his Foundation since he passed away from a brain tumor - nearly 1,500 across the country and growing every day.

Please help me again this year. It is so very important to the families we support. We are making a difference and I hope that you will join me again in making that difference. My fundraising page this year is https://www.crowdrise.com/Friends4Michael2015LAMarathon/fundraiser/michaelkwinn. Please to there and donate generously. I promise I won't let you down again. I certainly will not let my son down by continuing to help kids fighting a brain tumor. Thanks for helping me do that.

Everyone, thank you so much for your wonderful support of my effort to complete the LA Marathon. Alas, it was not to be unfortunately. My left knee forced me to stop shortly after mile 21, but I fought like hell to finish. I apologize for not completing this journey, but there is journey left to do with our Foundation. I was fortunate to have a reporter interview me on the course and I was able to share Michael's story with the viewers watching the marathon. It was a great moment and video (I have only seen it on Facebook, so I don't have a link to it, unfortunately.) Again, thank you for your wonderful support and I will assure you that I will be back and will continue Michael's challenge to me and to others to help kids fighting a brain tumor.

All,

Thank you so very much for your support. It really is humbling to have so many friends backing me in this effort to support my son and his foundation by taking on the LA Marathon. Because of your generosity, we have raised over $20K as a team! Thank you so much.

If you want to track my progress - and I promise that there will be progress, albeit slow! - you can go to this link: http://alerts.lamarathon.com/2014/cf/RegAthleteAlert/iframe_AthleteAlert.cfm. My bib number is 22487.

Thank you again and I promise you that I will finish - might be noon on Monday, but I will finish. I will not let Michael down.

Thanks so much, Ricco. I greatly appreciate your continued support. I will certainly need this extra motivation when things are getting tough...like at mile 2! :-) Hope to see you again soon!
