years ago yesterday (September 30, 2005), the word autism joined our
family's vocabulary. In honor of this milestone, I'd like to announce
that I will be running the Princess Half Marathon in 2013 with Train 4
Autism. This organization will help me raise money for Spectrum, our
local autism support group that helped me so much when our kids were
first diagnosed. I am hoping to raise $500 to help two children with
autism attend a week of summer camp next year!
This blog began as an adult-onset athlete's training log for the March 2010 Disney Princess Half Marathon. Since that time I have gone on to complete my first sprint triathlon (June 2011), my first full marathon (October 2011), Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge (January 2012), my first Olympic distance triathlon (April 2014), and my first Half Ironman (September 2014), and my first Century bike ride (April 2015)! Also in 2015, I finally reached my goal of becoming a Marathon Maniac/Double Agent by running 2 full marathons in 13 days! After a nice relaxing 2016 where I focused on my family and returned to the work force, my 2017 goal is to get myself ready for the Dopey Challenge the first week of 2018! :)
