THE STORY:

All the running community and the human race lost a great person, who in the past we have run several marathons for charity together. His name was Fulvio Abela and he made training and running marathons fun, yes I am calling 26.2 miles fun. My goal was to run the NYC Marathon that year in his memory but mother nature had other ideas so I am back and this year will be my dedication year and every time I lace up my running shoes he will always come to mind, therefore when the run gets tough I will think back on those times and pull through. So please read below and donate to a very worthwhile cause.
