Running with Gratitude Grief, & Gastroparesis (#Irun4GG)

It's been a difficult 3 months..
The pain of grief & gastroparesis can be intense...
In spite of the pain, I keep on running...

I finished the Chicago Marathon in 4:05:58



Michael & GG were with me every step of the way...

I find solace in running...
I'm grateful for every mile...
Training for my 3rd Philly Marathon...

Identical twins run with Team Lemon
in memory of our grandma "GG"

Can you donate $2 to Alex's Lemonade?
Are you training for the Philadelphia Marathon?
Are you a runner with chronic illness?
Do you find solace in running?
