My story is rather simple. Rather then just run the ING NYC Marathon I elected to run for a cause. There are many great causes and needs with an abundance of charities to support. I choose to run for The Boomer Esiason Foundation supporting Cystis Fibrosis under Team Boomer, in honor of Mallory Code. I attended Mallory's funeral a few years ago. Her parents video touched my heart as it showed how she never let Cystic Fibrosis get in her way of her goals. She was a college graduate, professional golfer and amazing lady. Although she did not make it to her twenty six birthday, she accomplished more then those that get to live a full life.
As I update my story I am halfway through training for the marathon. I have completed two 20 mile training runs and am averaging 40-46 miles a week. What gets me through this crazy running schedule.....breathing. This is something that I do with ease, compared to those with CF. Every mile, every breath I take leads me to prayers that our Team raises enough money to make a difference and find a cure for this terrible disease. Those of us that have children without medical problems are fortunate. There are millions out there that have to consider every day of their childs life a gift as they know that their timeline is very limited.
Less then one week til the marathon. I have been down from running for almost six weeks due to a hip stress injury. However, like those with CF I am not giving up! I may be walking part of this marathon, or hopefully the whole marathon. The goal is two fold, to do as much as I can to participate in the marathon, and raise as much as possible to help find the cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Please support me in not just cheering me on with my running, but with any donation that you can make to this amazing charity. It is truly to make a difference in choosing LIFE.
With much thanks and appreciation,
