50+ Marathons for J-Lo

Special update: On 10/21/07, I hit the "50+" target!

64! For the latest updates, go here.

Last year, I was trying to complete 55-60 marathons. Unfortunately, I had to stop in August. A family member found out she had breast cancer. I stopped running to help take care of her. Lots of testing, one mastectomy, four rounds of chemo, and lots of drugs later, and... she's doing okay. And I'm running again.

On 2/17/08, Jacksonville FL will host the National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer. I'll be there.

Between 1/1/07 and 2/17/08, I am going to attempt 50+ marathons to help raise awareness of the disease, early detection, and some of the other "faces" of cancer.

You'll see me. I'll be the guy in the pink shirt.
