THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Next Sunday I will run the LA Marathon for the 6th time, pounding 26.2 miles of pavement from Dodger Stadium to the Pacific Ocean.
It will also mark the 6th time I’ve run the race as a member of the Team To End AIDS (T2) charity running group.
Simply put, T2 and their fantastic coaches and support staff helped turn this former couch potato into a marathon runner. I will forever be grateful to them.
Each time I’ve officially run with the program, I’ve endeavored to raise money for T2/APLA (AIDS Project Los Angeles). Funds raised goes to help people in the Los Angeles area whose lives have been impacted by HIV/AIDS.

Every year around October 1st, I start hitting everyone I know up for donations. And every year, you respond with wonderful acts of generosity. Yesterday, thanks to all of you, I surpassed my 2015 fundraising goal of $1,000.
In the past I’ve listed my supporters individually, but this year a few donators asked to remain anonymous. So out of respect, for 2015 I will simply say: “thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”

That’s awesome! I am about to embark on my first charity team effort. Details soon on my blog.
That’s great. Running for a charity is an incredibly fulfilling experience. I’ll be very anxious to hear all about yours.
