Today’s Memory

Can it be that the month of February is already over?  The run this evening pushed me over the 200 mile mark this year.  Only 799 more to go!  I better get busy with the fund raising now that the marathon is over.  Help me spread the word!!

I’m proud to add Evelyn Carter to my tribute book and a special purple ribbon with her name will be added to my race gear.  Her son is running thirteen 5Ks in 2013 to raise awareness and money for Alzheimer’s research.  Visit  his blog at  http://rifflewader.wordpress.com/ and encourage him on his journey!

200 plus

Make it a memorable day!
