OK, here we go.
I'm running the San Francisco (first) half marathon in July. I have not run this distance since the NY marathon in 2006. My 1st half split time for that was 01:59. My second half split was 03:21 or so. Which is why I have not run that distance since. Anyway, I ran NY for my father, who died of a stroke. He passed away July 28, 1995. This marathon is on July 29th, 17 years and one day since. While I will think of him every step of the way, this round i am running to battle cancer, benefitting AICR, and would appreciate ANY donations you can make. I am running this one for a slew of good friends and dear family who have battled with cancer, but two in particular. I am running:
In memory of my uncle, John Lee (Mike) Mahoney, who peacefully ended his battle with cancer in February of 2010, and
In honor of my girlfriend's mother, Barbara Caldwell, and her entire family who have bravely been battling a GBM 4 since November of 2010.
