Marathon number 2 in the books – Thank You San Diego

On Sunday, June 3rd 2012 I completed my second marathon to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  I raised nearly $4,000 for Team In Training and had a fantastic time doing it!  Thank you to my friends, family and teammates for all your support!

Down & Dirty and The Raptor Run

July was a very busy month for Mud and Trails Runs and I loved every moment of it!

The best part of it all was spending time with past muddy buddies and some trail virgins!

Join us for the 20th Annual Lupus Loop!

A relative of a very close friend of mine has Lupus.  Every year the immediate family did the Lupus Loop 2.5m walk.  2.5 years ago my friend challenged me to RUN the Lupus Loop 5k.  This was my first race and running 3.1 miles seemed like it was going to be impossible!!  (Cut to 2.5 years later I’ve run a marathon, done several mud runs and distance trail runs!)

The Lupus Loop 2009

The next year we formed a Team called “The Lu Loopers” and we added a few new members…

My First Race - The Lupus Loop 2009

Independence Run

desperately trying to get back into the training groove, I ventured out with Iron Man – Vinny Mancini.  My allergies were killing me but we managed to get in 6 (tough) miles, a sprint up to the Constitution Center, and a couple great shots of my favorite city!  Hopefully after a couple more runs, I will be able to shake the post marathon blahs!
