BENEFITING: LOS ANGELES BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
ORGANIZER: LOS ANGELES BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
EVENT: 2016 LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Feb 14, 2016
I'm running in the LA Marathon for the third time this year. It will be my fourth marathon. For my first marathon, I just wanted to finish. For my second, I learned a hard lesson in what happens when you are under trained. For my third, I achieved a huge 14 minute personal record, finishing in 5 hours and 10 minutes. My goal this year is significant. After my last marathon, I anticipated it would be simply to run it in less than 5 hours. But I've had a great year of training and plan to have a much more aggressive goal (TBD!!).
I'm running this marathon for my own personal goals and for fitness, but I am also running again for an organization that is very important to me, the LA Boys and Girls Club. I volunteer with the local Club in Madison and have seen with my own eyes the affect it has on individuals and the community.
I'm asking for your support of me in this marathon and also of the Club. My fundraising goal is similar to my marathon time goal, in that it is very aggressive. I would like to raise more than I raised last year, which was $1,515. If you are able and willing, I would be very grateful for any support you could provide.
Thank you and I will keep you posted on my progress!
