Jackie!!!  “First marathon!  I ran for many reasons but a big inspiration came from my late brother in law Tom.  6 years ago he had been training to BQ and came up a few minutes short.  He felt in the prime of his life at 42 and then was diagnosed with leukemia.  His grim prognosis of 18 months didn’t let that stop him from running.  He petitioned the BAA to let him run his bucket list race and they did.  Sadly he was a mile from the finish in 2013 when officials diverted him off course due to the bombings.  He passed away from his illness the next year. His wife had never run a marathon but she wanted to finish it for him so she petitioned, got in and finished it in his honor the next year!  After being diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago myself, I wanted to accomplish a marathon and then I thought why not take a stab at a BQ for me and for Tom!   I’m happy to report at the age of 42 I did it!  3:38!  It was tough training through a brutal WI winter, but I trusted the training, fueled and hydrated well and now I’m in the BQ club!”

Getting out and just exercising has been a struggle, let alone running. BUT – I want to be a good role model to Elliana. We push ourselves forward and we don’t let little blips stand in our way!
