and so it begins...




Hello all!

You're probably here because somehow you've found out that I decided to run a half marathon to benefit the Palo Alto Ronald McDonald House. My plan is to keep you updated on my training as well as my motivation as I continue along my 3-month trek!














I started training this week.. 2-3 miles tuesday, thursday and saturday. So far so good! Hopefully soon I'll post up some pictures of the Ronald McDonald House so you can get a visual of what you're contributing to. Even if it's moral support, I appreciate every little bit, and I want to thank you for taking the time to come and look at my page.


In case you're wondering what I'm getting myself into, here's a link to the "Big Sur Half Marathon" in Monterey.. so you can get a visual of what I am working towards! http://www.bigsurhalfmarathon.org/site4.aspx

here's a map of the course:
















Also, here's a link to the Ronald McDonald House website:

here's a picture of me in front of the house!




















I'm feeling a mixture of things.. nervous about the marathon.. excited about the fundraising...



here I go!
