I am running the Boston Marathon! If you are receiving this email you are one of a few close friends and family members that I am wanting to keep updated on this endeavor. I will be updating you from time to time with an email giving you details on how my training is going and with a few pictures here and there. While this will probably be an ugly scene, I am determined to have some good come from it. This is why I am raising money for a great cause, Operation Smile. They do amazing things for kids with Cleft Pallet in third world countries. For every $240 dollars we raise we will be able to provide a life changing operation for a child who cannot get proper nutrition and who is often outcast from their community because of Cleft Pallet. Please know that I do not expect you to donate, I really just want to share this crazy adventure with you. If you do feel the urge to give please know that this is a great cause that my family and I support. Please keep me in your prayers during this training period, I'm going to need them!
