Boston Marathon 2018, an adventure to remember for a lifetime. A special memory with my soulmate and and according to a summary from a news anchor – “not a race, but an epic test of wills in frigid temps.” A friend of mine shared that statement with me, and it pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Here’s the shoe we filled up during the ultra marathon (31-mile) funding-raising push last month. Isn’t that awesome? Let’s fill the other one for the #Boston2018 marathon adventure!! Monday April 16th, I get the honor of running the historic Boston Marathon in Mary Sue Seymour’s name. It’s been a privilege this past year to have taken on many adventures in her name. Running up the side of Pikes Peak, running the Cave Creek Thriller 50k, and just last month running the Crown King Scramble 50k. You’ve all been with me the entire time, and I can’t thank you enough. One[…]

All it takes is donating either 25-cents or 50-cents per mile to St Jude Children’s Hospital (link below) and I’ll put your name on my shoe for the 50k race I’m doing this Saturday March 24th.

Thanks to a friend and all her creativity, I have a new racing mascot. Check it out: Isn’t that the sweetest thing EVER? Anyone who knows me, or watches my social media, knows I love stuffed animals. They just make me smile. Well, I have a 20-miler race tomorrow: The 4 Peaks Challenge, and I know this little cutie will be with me at the start…maybe not during the run, but before and after!! So, if you see me out there, be sure to say HI! And don’t forget, you can come along side me as my racing adventures continue[…]
