Chicago Marathon

Well, after 2 years of running.. ive decided to run the Chicago Marathon in October. Its kind of one of my life goals and I figure that now is as good a time as any to mark it off the list. I decided to run as a part of Team World Vision. If you dont know of World Vision its a Christian humanitarian organization that supports children and families around the world who are living in extreme poverty. Kevin and I have sponsored a child for about 10 years now and think the world of the organization-- 86% of all of the money raised by them goes directly to the poor.

My goal is to raise $1000 for World Vision before i run all 26.2 miles of it in October. None of this money goes to me for my race registration, flight, etc.. it all goes directly to World Vision. I'm asking for any support you will offer. Its a good cause and a really easy way to give to those who werent born with the luxuries that most of us were. I have a web page that makes it really easy to donate.

Thanks in advance for anything that you can give! Ill keep you posted as I train in what has seemed like running in the pits of hell lately. Im really hoping it cools down a bit!
Love you guys!

    Good luck with the training and the marathon! I'm very impressed. I've always hated running but am very envious of those that do run. I can't wait to hear how things go!
