Tomarrow I will be getting up at 3am and driveing to Kansas, for my first Full Marathon of the season, running for leukemia and lymphoma society. This week was also my first stab at Skinning for Charity, with the Marathon Icon Suite.

So far it is selling pretty well, but I can use any help that the community can give me in keeping it in the public eye. Its got a long way to go to meet the goal we have set.

For those of you who have already purchased the suite thank you very much! Wish me luck, ill see you all in 26.2 miles.  

Marathon Icon Suite.

Good luck to you and since this is your first full marathon of the season, take care of the feet.

I just want to thank you mormegil, for doing the marothon, for leukemia and lymphoma society, as I am a sufferer of lymphodema  this will mean so much to many as there is very little known about this and also no known cure for it. so well done and all the best

No first place for me, but it's the thought that counts.

I did get fifth in my age group, but this was a very small race. Thanks alot guys.

Now I get to do it all again in 3 weeks.
