Marking the Miles to Boston – 3 days to go!

Through my efforts to raise money in the fight against cancer through ACS DetermiNation I have reached $1400!  As I prepare for the race these last days, I want to thank all my donors to all 3 of my marathons this year including Marine Corps Marathon in November and VT City last May.  I have raised more than $4000 this year and am so proud and thankful for all the support of my friends and family and colleagues that have generously donated to my efforts.
The course to Boston is posted in the images and this link will take you to this cool site I found where you can get the detail on each mile. 

I am running each mile in memory or in honor of someone designated by my supporters and as I run it is through the strength and spirit of those people that will carry me to the finish line.  I will update this as I get responses
