Half Marathon: Training, Fundraising Update

We’re now 21 days from the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon and a very supportive Twitter/Facebook/website crowd has helped me raise $20,504. Since the goal was $20,000 and we shattered that, the focus will now be on $30,000.

Please continue to spread the word and help me raise EB awareness. I’m running in honor of Tripp Roth, the baby from Ponchatoula who recently lost his battle with EB. If you haven’t done so already, please take a moment to read his heart-wrenching story on his mom’s blog.

My training continues to go well. I ran 12 miles on Saturday, my longest run to date. For the week I ran 25.37 miles and averaged 10:08 minutes per mile. I’ve run 113.7 miles year-to-date.
