Nike Women’s Marathon
This past weekend my two daughters, Amanda and Mallory successfully completed their first full marathon in San Francisco at the Nike Women’s Marathon (25,000 participants, 20% of whom do the whole marathon, 90% are women) in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
To get there (in addition to training) they had to raise a minimum of $7,800; they ended up at almost $11,000. We were at an “Inspiration Lunch” on Saturday with approximately 2000 people in the room; the MC asked those who were “survivors” to stand and Amanda was one of only a dozen in the entire room. A pretty neat feat.
Amanda and Mallory held their hands high in celebration as they crossed the finish line together on Sunday. Needless to say I was very proud. And I just thought I’d share the story!
