- The 13.1 in the bronze circle indicates the distance of the half marathon I will run.
- "In Memory of My Dad" is the two lines of text in the silver rectangle. This is pretty self explanatory. I started running to get ready for a 5K fundraiser race for lung cancer. I lost my Dad to lung cancer in April 2008. I've been running ever since. My father was so brave and courageous in his battle that I thought it would be fitting to do something (like running) that would take me out of my comfort zone.
- 9/19/10 is the date of the half marathon (Philly Rock-N-Roll Half) that I will run. September 19 was my Dad's birthday. He would have been 67 this year. I will run a half marathon in memory and honor and tribute to him. When I cross the finish line, I'll be sending some balloons up to heaven! The date of the race couldn't have been more perfect!
