Well, kids, if you wander over to the LA Marathon website, you’ll see the lovely race countdown currently reads: 29 days. And in other crazy awesome exciting news… I WON A FREE BIB THROUGH A WEBSITE GIVEAWAY!!!! *Courtesy of MommyWarriors.com and Salonpas Pain Relief Patches.
Nope, I’m not a mom–although my husband does call me “mommy” when he talks to our 94-pound bloodhound, Sully: “Mommy‘s gonna take you on a walk, buddy. Be a good boy for mommy.” And it’s no secret that hubby and I are very, very excited to have real, human babies “one day.”
But for now, I’m throwing my whole heart into running the LA Marathon in honor of my beautiful 16 year old niece, Jessie, who is courageously battling her sixth relapse of a nine year battle with cancer, not to mention one of THE strongest “mommy warriors” on this Earth: my sister, Amy.
|I am infinitely and wordlessly proud of these two women who mean the world to me.|
