So, I just ran in the Chicago Marathon and although I didn't run with anyone else, I didn't feel alone because I knew I was part of Team FARA. I raised (and will continue to raise) money for FARA because of the Suttons. Eight summers ago I volunteered at MDA summer camp in Illinois which is where I met the Suttons: Jamie, Jenn, and Casey who all have FA (their other brother Mike, although equally awesome, does not have FA).
Over the years, Jenn and Jamie have become my pseudo sisters. Camp after camp, party after party, matching tattoo after matching tattoo, from Vegas to Jasper, I love these girls with all of my heart. Aside from being outrageously attractive, they are hilarious and possess unwavering strength against their day-to-day challenges.
Next on my list of events to train for: duathlons and triathlons and maybe eventually, The Big Sur International Marathon. Wherever I go & whatever I do, I will embrace being a member of Team FARA. : )
