Inspired by Gabe Grunewald and the running community, I am running 34 miles for my 34th birthday. Gabe passed away in June 2019 but her spirit lives on in her husband Justin and the Brave Like Gabe Foundation. Donations benefit rare cancer research centers including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Please donate directly at www.bravelikegabe.org/donate and enter comment "34 for 34". Donations can also be submitted directly through the GoFundMe site.
My birthday is on February 10th but I will be running on Sunday February 9th with the plan for those interested to "pledge" to run a lap with me as I run around Lake Harriet 11+ times. You can pledge laps at the Facebook event link below:
