Please help me by supporting our Special Forces Children this Christmas

Dear Blog Readers,

In 9 days I am about to partake in the Marine Corps Marathon in and around Washington DC.  It will be 26.2 mile journey throughout our historic nations capital surrounded by Real American Hero’s (the Marines I hear have 2 options…. Work it or run it).  I am reaching out to you to see if you can partake in the this journey with me.  I have trained for months and put in 100s Miles (and a 6 pairs of running shoes worth of running) in training for one reason. To run this race and support our nation’s Heros that have made so many sacrifices to support us.

Looking forward to taking the hill at the Marine Corps Memorial this year!!!

 Please join me in this journey by make a small investment (see I am not asking you to run the whole thing with me) into these guys and gals by making a donations to Support US Armed Forces.  Every little bit will help.  All of this money that we raise will be going toward our goal of making Christmas better for dependents (kids) of the Special Operation Units that are deployed OCONUS.  Our goal is to raise and then spend $100,000 for these kids. 

Many of you all know friends or family members that have served our country and many of you guys know that wallets are tight for many military families.  So our goal is to show the kids that we care for them and what their parents are doing.  So please help out our soldiers’ children this Christmas, and THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!!!!  

To donate, please go to:

 Please let me know if you want to track me during the race.  I can sign you up for email or txt alerts



Your favorite runner (aka Lazy Runner)
