LA 1 in 1986 was my first marathon. Since
that memorable day, my life has changed.
This event has taught me valuable lessons
about running and about life. I have
learned to pace myself and stay on course
through the many months of training
leading up to race day. I’ve learned to
believe in the power of commitment. This
day has also become a ritual for my family.
Every year, they come together to cheer
on the runners and wait patiently for me to
complete my task. This marathon is so
much more than a road race in my life. It
is a celebration of the promises I have
made to live a meaningful life, to be an
example and to challenge myself physically and mentally.
This year, my youngest daughter Caitlin is running her first marathon! We have trained together &
have forged a new bond between us as runners. It is yet another wonderful blessing that the LA
Marathon has bestowed on me.
