As you know, my brother Michael and I have committed to running hundreds of miles and raising thousands of dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through its Team in Training (TNT) program. We’re both participating with TNT in the Marine Corps Marathon this year (me the full, Michael the 10K), but we’re also running unrelated, nonaffiliated races in an attempt to raise awareness and money for LLS. Today was Race #1 for Michael: the TuTu 2.2 Race.
This race was held in Asbury Park, New Jersey, and benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County. Michael finished in just over 27 minutes, and ran with a group of five Do It For David supporters, including the Edwards’ family. As you may recall, they were one of our biggest supporters last year.
With a new year comes new race day signs! Check out these gems, which made their first appearance today. I should mention that they received attention from a Star-Ledger reporter. Maybe we’ll get a blurb in the paper!
After today’s race, Michael has 197.8 miles to go (this includes training runs). Think he can do it? I know he can!
Stay tuned for Do It For David fundraising information. I’m working on the site and can’t wait to share it with you when it’s complete. LET’S DO THIS!!
