As many of you know, I have been training hard for my very first Boston Marathon!! Over the past few months I have logged many miles through the rain, snow, and freezing temperatures. I’ve gotten up way too early for my liking, spent too much time away from Brett and the girls, pushed through sore muscles and blisters, and run up more hills than I care to recall. And if you’ve ever gone running with me, you know how much I despise running hills!!
So why have I been doing all this? I guess the simplest answer is, I’ve always wanted to run a marathon. Every April I watch the Boston Marathon either in person or on television and every year I feel the same. I’m inspired by the ordinary people I see doing such an extraordinary thing, and I simply want to be a part of it! In order to join these ordinary people, however, I need to raise money for a local charity. So I’ve chosen an extraordinary charity who’s mission is ordinary... remember and honor our fallen war heroes.
I am extremely honored to be running this marathon for the Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial. The MIAFHM fund seeks to remember and honor our extraordinary brothers and sisters for their extraordinary sacrifices to our country by creating a permanent Memorial to our Fallen Heroes. It is an enormous task that I hope you, my fellow patriots, will help us achieve. Please make a donation to my MIAFHM Marathon run today! By giving to MIAFHM you too will become a part of tribute these brave Americans so greatly deserve. Thank you.
