Looking Ahead to 2014

I wanted to take a minute and update folks on a few things that I am excited about as we get ready to usher in the New Year.  For starters, keep an eye on Endurance Racing Magazine as I will be writing a standing column called “Racing Against Cancer” where I will talk about all things racing and cancer related. Obviously I have many personal experiences to draw from and my journey has connected me with some very inspirational athletes along the way.

I am also excited to have been asked to remain on as a Philanthropic Ambassador for Newton Running for a second year. I have developed a great relationship with these guys and I LOVE THEIR SHOES. So, this is a win-win for both of us.

Don’t forget the upcoming Endurance Sports Expo in Oaks PA on February 22nd and 23rd. I will be running around there most of the weekend wearing multiple hats and will again facilitate one of the discussion panels.

I will again be attending the HEADstrong Lime Light Gala in memory of Nicholas Colleluori. If you recall, in 2012, I was honored as the recipient of the Nicholas Colleluori Award for my contributions to the blood cancer community. More on this later, but this year I will be there as not only a supporter but also as a presenter of one of the awards being given.

There are also a couple of very cool video projects brewing that are much too early to talk about. These are in the infancy stage of discussion, but they have the potential to be big – and awesome. Stay tuned.

And of course I am looking at the calendar and trying to determine what the rest of my racing calendar will look like. So far I am racing the Yuma Arizona marathon in late January, Challenge AC in Atlantic City New Jersey in June, as well as my fall staples of ChesapeakeMan, and the NYC and Philly Marathons. I need to fill in some of the smaller local races and I will be set. And all of this needs to revolve around an additional couple of leukemia treatments that are still needed. All is Ok in that department and I really just feel like I am finishing up my prescription medication after now feeling great.

Stay tuned and thanks for reading. Train safe, race smart, and thank the volunteers.
