Sandy and I have eclipsed the half-way point in out training to run the ING Miami Half Marathon as members of Team Lifeline. This past Sunday, we ran 7 miles (the race is 13.1 miles). Boy, was it freezing but we pushed eachother through the wind and pain and we did it.

Our fund raising goal is $6000.00 and we haven’t even hit $3000.00 yet. Chai Lifeline’s Camp Simcha is an unparalleled Camp for children with cancer and other serious pediatric diseases.

Please help us to help raise funds for Camp Simcha by visiting our page here and clicking on donate. Every donation helps, thanks.

As many of you know, my wife and I are training to run in the Miami Half-Marathon for Team Lifeline. We are slowly increasing mileage and, with that, comes a little extra grind. As an incentive, I try to think about all of the good work that Chai Lifeline is doing. Please consider helping us to raise funds by visiting our page here and donating. Thanks.

This video shows the course of the race in Miami. We will be running the half which breaks away at around the 3:48 point of the video. This looks much easier to do in a car!!
