Less than a year ago, I couldn't run a block, much less a mile. Then, AIDS Project / Los Angeles said they'd train me to run a half marathon, if I'd just help them raise funds.
Dozens of friends came forward, donating over $4,100, and I completed the Santa Barbara 1/2 Marathon on October 8th. I was so proud and amazed that I'd been able to do both things, that I signed up to do it all over again - only double!
On March 18th, I'll run 26.2 miles in the Honda LA Marathon. I'm not expected to raise as much money this time, but I'd sure like to surprise APLA with a huge donation. If you can help, please think about it.
I can't thank you enough, but I'll try to make you proud.
