This cause is very dear to me!
My Aunt Joan was the most selfless, sweetest and strongest woman I had the honor of knowing. She lost her battle with Lung Cancer in 2013 but has left a lasting impression on me. I miss her every day and only wish, as I "grow up", that I can be half the woman she was!
Last year, I flew to Phoenix for the weekend and ran a 5k in memory of my Aunt Joan. Unfortunately, this year I am unable to fly to Arizona the weekend of the race, so instead, I have decided to brave the cold, February weather and run 3.1 miles on my own, right here in NY at the same time my family is running in the Arizona sun!
I appreciate everything...even if you just stopped by to read my page. Thank you for helping me reach my goal - any little bit helps!
Keep smiling :)
