Chicago Marathon Charity : Team Red Cross

I’m excited to announce that I will be running the 2014 Chicago Marathon!

Registration for the marathon opened today. While many people across the country were entering the lottery, I was busy setting up my fundraising page for the race. I chose to avoid the uncertainty of the lottery process by joining a charity team.

I will be running the Chicago Marathon for Team Red Cross: 2014 Chicago Marathon.
