Steve – 9, Asthma—a big fat ZERO!

This might sound corny, but I feel like Ive just been reborn. On Oct 5th I finished my 9th marathon at the Portland Marathon. If you’ve been reading my updates, this was a scheme I had hatched while hospitalized back in July. I was feeling incredibly down at the time and was curious to see […]

Next Race in 2 weeks!

Only 14 days left until the USHALF marathon. This half marathon walk is going to be a lot tougher than the last one I did at the RUNSFM . There are 3 challenging hills to climb. I can walk on flat surfaces for hours but hills, that’s another story. Even a moderate incline can wipe […]
