THE STORY:

This past December, my sisters and I discussed doing a half marathon together.  Living in three different cities that didn't work out, but we each ran one in our home city. Prior to this, I can't say that I enjoyed running very much and the farthest I had ever run was seven miles, but the sibling rivalry helped keep me going.  I liked the challenge so much that I became addicted to running and wanted to push myself harder, so I set the goal of running the Chicago Marathon. 
 

My friends Kelly and Michael Lish introduced me to the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation and I was inspired to join their team.  I am incredibly blessed with two healthy boys, so it is important to lend my support to families impacted by childhood illness.  My sons are active and athletic and they motivate me to not only keep up with them, but also to keep myself fit so that I can enjoy as much of their lives as possible. 

I greatly appreciate a donation of any amount you can give to this wonderful team.  I'll be thinking of all of you, and the families helped by Bear Necessities, as I power through those 26.2 miles on October 13!
