Lacing Her Shoes

Susan from I Run For My Life is running her second Marathon this weekend. The St. Jude’s Marathon in Memphis. What makes this special is that she is had dedicated her race to Elijah, a personal friend of her’s who is going through chemotherapy for a second time. What makes it special is that Elijah is 6 and will turn 7 on December 1st, which just happens to coincide with the marathon!! And he just came home from the hospital!

Susan has been raising money for the St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital and now the raising money and training is complete, it’s now time to put the shoes on the asphalt and RUN! (technically you can still donate 🙂 )

I know that She and I have crossover readers, but if you don’t read her blog on a regular basis, I encourage you to go over there and leave a word of encouragement.

On top of all this, she is well primed to totally destroy her previous PR time of 5:38:15 she ran at the Little Rock Marathon on March 4, 2007.

  2. Susan says:

    THANKS A MILLION, Coach! I hope to crush that PR!!!

  3. Susan says:

    Well, I obviously did NOT crush that PR. But, all things considered, I am proud to just have completed the 26.2 miles. I’ll never be able to thank you for all of your support!
