I just finished training for my first marathon. I am currently training for a couple of other half marathons and another marathon January 2010. Running has brought a different meaning to my life. I run because I am healthy enough to do it!!!!
I ran the Chicago Marathon October 11th, 2009. I managed to raise over $3,000 for ANF (American Nicaraguan Foundation) http://www.aid.nicaragua.org and I exceeded my first goal of $2620.00. This marathon was amazing! My timing was a surprise to me! I finished it in 4:59:19. My original goal had been 530 so I am very happy with my time!
