I'm doing it again! ... This time it's personal... but when is it not personal?
This year I am planning on running 10 marathons for the Imerman Angels in my wings in honor of my wife Leslie and our 10 years of marriage. She is my reason why I run! I wish that I could say that running 10 marathons is enough to support the amazing job the Imerman Angels do, but the work that Mentor Angels do is amazing and beautiful. Yes, AMAAAAAZZZZZIIIIIINNNNNGGGGG!
