THE STORY:

Deja vu?  Perhaps, but read anyways and then click to donate

Last year was rough…I spent the good part of five months training…in the rain, early on Saturday mornings, holidays, work trips…all in preparation for my first ever marathon; supporting a cause that was/is so near and dear to my heart.  The disappointment was immeasurable when the marathon was finally announced cancelled.  With all of the support and training over those five months, my world came crashing down that Friday afternoon, as I was boarding my plane to New York, when the announcement was made.  The cliché phrase rings true, “everything happens for a reason”.  It was not in the cards last November and we all knew it was the right call to make.  Thanks a lot Sandy.

But now, I am back again, hell bent to take on the five boroughs of New York!

Is my training where it should be for a marathon that is 12 weeks away?  Probably not.  Life can be complicated and the commitment gets tougher and tougher. Training for a marathon is a mind game.  If you are not committed, running just three miles is torture.  But what I currently lack in training, I make up with a stubborn determination to cross that finish line.  The ING New York Marathon will not only be my first, but it will also be the hardest and certainly the greatest accomplishment to date.

With that, I again ask for your support.  Let’s get back to what brought me here in the beginning.  ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  My father has surpassed his 3 year mark with this disease that typically only gives patients 2-5.  His tenacity and willingness to push through, all the while celebrating life is truly inspirational.  We should all take a lesson.

This disease still lacks a strong voice, or proper knowledge of what ALS actually is; we have yet to find a cure or valid treatment and who knows how many possible causes- most unproven.  This is where Prize4Life steps in…

Prize4Life is dedicated to accelerating the discovery of treatments and cures for ALS -- using powerful incentives to attract new people and drive innovation.  With the donations I receive, this process will continue to move forward.

My training will improve and your donations give me the incentive to work that much harder.  My inspiration is my father, my goals are 26.2 miles and the advancement to a cure.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your support.  Roll Tide!
