EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2011
On Sept 17th 2011 I am going to be running in the US Air Force Half Marathon, in Dayton, Ohio. This will be my first Half Marathon, although I have ran many 5k and 10k events. I am running to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer.
I lost my Grandmother Frances Bailey on November 4th 2009 to this type of cancer, and I am running to honor her memory. All proceeeds will go to the Joseph C. Monastra Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
I will be posting updates in my training and on race day to my Facebook. I set a pretty lofty goal of $5000 to reach for this run. If you can donate please do so, and if you can't that is ok as well. Let the countdown to the race commence.
