The Challenge! - Marathon Goddess

I’ve learned that if people think your crazy, more than likely you are on the right track. The challenge: 52 Marathons in 52 weeks to raise over $1,000,000 to help find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.The contender: Julie Weiss a Real Estate accountant by day, a Marathon Goddess by early mornings, nights and weekends. Risking her job, her dog, her amazing life in Santa Monica for a deranged assignment of greatness (good thing her kids are all grown up and can confirm their Mom has lost her marbles). This blog was inspired by Julie & Julia. Julie’s challenge was to cook a Julia Child’s recipe every day for a year, while my challenge is to run a marathon every weekend, sometimes two. That doesn’t sound too hard, but she is faced with a giant obstacle, with her 1st marathon less than 50 days away she has a knee that won’t let her run. Is this the Universe’s way of making her rest up? Could be. Oh my, this is crazy and absolutely PERFECT! 50 days to take off……

    Crazy for running 52 marathons?! Yes! One is an acomplishment. 52?… well, I guess it’s like running a marathon. You can’t run all 26.2 miles at once, you just have to take it a step at a time. Although it wasn’t pancreatic cancer that touched my family, we did lose my West Point-graduate, Fortune 100 Executive, loving uncle to cancer and I gotta say that doing something about fighting cancer is certainly both courageous and worth while. Congrats! I’ve made a small, $26.20, contribution to your efforts.
