Tommy's Team

Hi Everyone!

For the past year, I've been trying to learn to like running. So far, it's a massive failure, but, I still try and do a few races a season. I'm extremely proud to announce that this year I'm going to be walking/running as a member of Tommy's Team in the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago's 5k at Montrose Harbor. Many of you out there know Tommy, and what an awesome little guy he his. His mom, my amazing friend Erin, has put together Tommy's Team to help raise money and awareness in hopes of finding a cure for epilepsy, a condition she has had to become familiar with over the past year.

Allow me to put in the compulsory bragging photos of the cuteness that is Tommy:

Tommy and I get to have lunch whenever he sees his neurologist, who's office is conveniently located 3 blocks from my office.

Tommy, chillin' in my office. He's a VIP. You only get string cheese if you are  VIP.

Eating pizza like a BOSS.
Erin is heading up the main division of Tommy's Team at the Wheaton race on May 12, 2012. I will be heading up division two at the Montrose Harbor race on May 19, 2012, since I, sadly, cannot attend on the 12th. This is a walk/run family friendly event-- you do not have to be a runner! (Let's be glad for walk/jog/walk/walk/walk/jog/pant-for-breath/walk combo is slightly far from professionally competitive).

If you are interested in joining us on Tommy's Team at either location (or any of the other locations!), you can register here and THANK YOU, you RULE. If you are not so into the racing, but are interested in making a donation, then, THANK YOU, you also RULE. You can make a donation here

 If you have any questions, you can contact me by leaving a comment or shooting me an email. You can also contact Erin if you want more information about the Wheaton race, the epilepsy foundation, or her experiences being Tommy's mom.
