LIVESTRONG:: New York Marathon style

 

As the New York Marathon approaches – I am reminded of what a truly awesome experience I had running the 40th New York Marathon.  Not only did I get a BQ time, I was inspired for the charity I was running for — LIVESTRONG.

With the help of my family and friends, I was able to raise over $5,000 for the Livestrong foundation.  And – what a feeling it was to dedicate 26.2 miles to the people in my life and other friends who have been affected by cancer.  Every mile, every step was for them … not me.

 

In spite of all that has happened with Lance in the recent weeks, I am truly grateful for the foundation he created for cancer research.  Doping or not – one thing is for sure – he has touched millions of people worldwide through his foundation.  In my opinion, that is much bigger than any TDF victory.
