I am running my first half marathon! I am excited to be training for another race and raising money for a great cause. Please read more about ComforTree at http://www.comfortree.org/. This is a great organization that helps to reduce stress in the lives of cancer patients and their families by providing free monthly house cleaning services in their homes. I hope that you will support these fine folks in their mission and me in my cause by donating. Even the smallest gift will help me to reach my goal. Thank you in advance for your compassion and support.

This is my second half marathon fundraiser for cancer--my first working with ComforTree! I am running with my good friend, Melissa Pytlack, who is a running and yoga buddy, and dear friend. Please support us as we train, fundraise, and continue to fight the battle against cancer!
This year, I am running in honor of my friend Lauryn Maloney-Feiler. Lauryn is the mother of one of my students, and she is celebrating her 20th cancer-free year. Running for an individual helps me keep pushing in those last miles when I just want to slow down and walk, and I know that Lauryn is the perfect motivator for me!
