    I am running the 2011 Boston Marathon to raise money for the American Liver Foundation's Run for Research, and will post frequently about my training here, in these final weeks leading up to the race.

    Recently, I spent the day with Dr. Trampas TenBroek, who oversees the New Balance Sports Research Laboratory in Lawrence, MA.  I was astounded by the science that goes into running, and developing running shoes, and I think you will be, too!

    The team at New Balance has been fantastic, and donated a number of items that I can randomly give to a few lucky folks who donate to my Run for Research Boston Marathon run!  The prizes include:

    • Two Falmouth Road Race Bib Numbers - Very hard to come by!
    • His/Hers pair of New Balance shoes
    • Head-to-toe package of New Balance gear: apparel, socks, shoes, etc.

    DONATE ANY AMOUNT NOW, TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS RANDOM DRAWING!
