This is my second year of attempting the LA Marathon. I joined a walking club in 2011 and then was convinced to try and run a full marathon. During this time, AADAP decided to put together a charity team for the LA Marathon 2012. We were able to succesfully recruit 19 runners and raise over $20,000. Club 26.2 trained me to complete my first Marathon in March 2012. Since then I have completed three more half marathons.
Training for a marathon has been super positive. I have become much more healthy, got my competitive juices going and I get a chance to raise some money for AADAP. A company that I feel so fortunate to spend the last 20 years working for. I not only run for myself, I also run for hope!!!
