Stuff About Me:

Ok, if you clicked on this it means you are looking for a little more info about  this crazy little race. Haha so here is a video -or you can read below 

Let me start by saying YES it really is just 26.2 "STEPS" at the Omaha Cancer Survivor Park (or maybe if you are doing a proxy race ... still, just 26.2 steps ;)

Second, it is ok to laugh about this race  that is the point :) And then to say, "Wait, I can run that one!"

And Third, there is no formal entry fee.  I just ask that you look at the three charities listed and make a donation(s) that fits your budget.  

What do you get in return? Well, the feel good feeling of helping others :) AND because we have generous friends (while sizes/supplies last) free mini marathon t- shirts, AND your very own 26.2 "Step" mini marathon car sticker for your own bragging rights - LOL DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!!

Now, how does one come up with a 26.2 step Mini Marathon? Well, that involves  signing up for the Chicago Marathon for Bright Pink, but then promptly falling off a retaining wall and breaking your hip (think Wile E. Coyote and any cliff scene, and you get the picture), having a very talented ortho Dr putting me back together with enough pins not to kill my spirit, but telling me crutches for 4-months was my future... and voila the Mini Marathon was born, because at that moment you realize 26.2 Steps is going to be a marathon!

THEN, it became sooo much more... because other people were also able to celebrate those they loved who had fought cancer. People who just loved the fun of the event, people who were in treatment, or who could not walk in other events for their own personal reasons  so when my children said they wanted to continue to host this event (forever)... well, I said ok!!
