    Ever since I got into the triathlon community a couple years ago, I have been blown away by everyone I’ve met along the way. Its not just their dedication to the sport and the insane levels of training they put themselves through, but also their unwavering dedication to those who swim, bike and run along side them. Even if they don’t personally know them. This could not have been made more clear to my wife and I over the past year. And even more specifically The Eleonore Rocks Foundation. I strongly encourage you to visit their page and learn more about them, but the short story is that they are dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of sick children and their families, even more so children who are terminally ill, or in our case, children who never really get to have a chance in this world.

    On August 19th, 2015 our daughter Alice Isabell was born asleep and moved on from this world surrounded by as much love as we could possibly give. There has not been a harder thing to ever happen to us, and only those who have lost a child at birth or shortly there after can every really know that sense of loss. But Eleonare Rocks and those who I’ve met along the way showed us an almost un-measurable amount support when we were at the lowest point we’ve ever faced. There aren’t enough words to thank all those involved, so I won’t even try. But what I can do is to help spread the word about this group. This year, and for all years to come, I will race for my girls. For Eden who is here, and Alice who is not.

First time running in this race, but I’ve spectated the past couple years. Still seems to be some growing pains going on but also seems to be improving. The course needs work, I know construction threw it for a loop this year, but this is definitely not the route that should be stuck with. “A tour of Canton” is not always something someone wants to experience. There we’re nice sections but overall having to run them twice was a bit lack luster. The aid stations could really use some work too, the ball got dropped a bit this year and was compounded by the brutal conditions. 2 mile spans in 85 degree heat at the end of a marathon is not acceptable plus running out of supply is not what will lift this race to the level of any of the other major spring and fall marathons in the region.
