Four years ago I received a life saving gift from a man from Germany. At that point I was in rough shape from a disease called Severe Aplastic Anemia.
Since then all things are new- My wife and I have welcomed a beautiful baby girl, I am in better shape than I was before getting sick and we have become friends with my bone marrow donor Martin.
I would like to use this site to raise money for the organization that made this all possible. I want to do so in a way that shows that life after transplants can be a great thing.
I am now 30 years old and for a few years I have been mulling over some shorter distance running times that I would like to get. I'm not getting any younger so I decided to seek these goals this year (I'll save the longer stuff for the future).
Goal 1: 1/2 Marathon in under 1 hour 30 min.
Goal 2: 5k in under 18 min.
Goal 3: 1 mile in under 5 min.
I do not think any of these are impossible for me, but they will take a lot of work. I am challenging people to donate to be the match for every goal that I accomplish. I will keep people in the loop as to what races and when I plan on running. I am trying to obtain all three goals by April 24, 2017 a day before my 31 birthday.
