This is my second year running a full marathon with Team CF, for my three year old nephew Evan and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I have chosen to run the Chicago Marathon on October 13 to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and I am asking for each person to donate what you can to ensure the unbelievable progress made by this foundation can one day state proudly, Cure Found! I am well into my training, hitting my 21 mile training run this weekend and as I work through the temporary pains, injury and fatigue I am driven by the dream that one day Evan and all of those affected by this disease will be able to breathe easier.
