October 18th, 2015 I will be running the Denver Half Marathon with my best friend Carolyn. We've been friends since the beginning of time having Irish Step Danced together and our families grew extremely close.
Her father Joe was a big part of my child hood, coming on vacations with us and encouraging us to have a good time. Never a dull moment with Joe (:
About a year ago we lost Joe to Pancreatic Cancer. It was a tough time in our lives and I will be running this race with his daughter, my best friend Carolyn to help raise money for this cause.
Any little bit will help us to stop this terrible disease. Thank you so much and here's to you Joe. We'll be thinking of you every step of the way and that's a lot of steps! (13.1 miles).
