Why red? Simply put, red is Samantha’s favorite color. Why do I wear it? Because the marathon isn't for me, it's for her. Yes, it will help me with my weight issues (if I train correctly) and satisfy the itch to perform and compete, but the bottom line is that I'm raising money to fight her cystic fibrosis by running this marathon.
So the red is a reminder that, with each step I take in training, I'm a little bit closer to ending her disease. Someday, maybe not all that far away, I will be able to say with a high degree of certainty, that we found a cure. Then I'll have to run marathons for another organization, and I'll find a good color for that one too.
