BENEFITING: American Diabetes Association, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED - 4 hours, 5 minutes, 39 seconds
Thanks again to all of you for your generous support of this cause - it certainly did help me through the tough moments knowing that amount was on the line today - it gives me tremendous pleasure to know that you guys have helped make a difference and all I had to do was run 26 miles !
Undeterred by tough weather conditions (winds gusting up to 30 mph and temperatures hovering below the 40 degrees), I managed to post a highly satisfying 4 hours 5 minutes, 39 seconds for the 26 miles - an amazing experience with huge support on the roads from the locals, inspiring you to dig a little deeper when you think you've already given everything.
As you know, I was raising funds for the American Diabetes Association. This is a cause that is very close to my heart as it affects both my father and brother-in-law, as well as 347 million other people worldwide. Money raised will assist in the quest to find a cure and to help people living with the disease.
