Twittering for a cure

This Sunday a group of runners are going to provide live Twitter updates throughout the National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer. Personally, I am doing this in an effort to raise money for the cause. My mother is a breast cancer survivor and the disease has affected too many people that I care about. This seemed like a great opportunity to have fun with Twitter and raise money for a great cause.

Steve Vandergriff and I will be pacing a group of marathoners who are aiming to break 4:30 in the race. The goal is to provide the race updates while making sure our group achieves it's goal. On top of all of this, since my broken elbow has not completely healed from my accident, I'll be twittering and running and trying not to fall.

Here is the map for the race:

That's it for now. Don't forget to track us on Sunday!
