Running For St. Judes


Recommended Posts

This year my wife, Karen, will be running the Chicago marathon as a St. Jude hero again. As the flagship of the Children's Hospital Network, St. Jude is a special charity. Unlike last year however, Karen made a deal with her Facebook friends that if they met a certain monetary goal, she would run the race in a Wonder Woman costume (I was actually pushing for a bikini clad Princess Leia, since I am a man of that age). As can be seen below, they did step up. Additional, race-day photos will be forthcoming.

You guys are too quick for me. Big thanks to Antonio, Aimless Al, Todd S, Nate (and Lily and Andrew) and Chris. You're the best.  

So I am necrobumping this thread from 7!!! years ago. This year is a bit different in a few ways. First, the Marathon will be run in virtual mode. Everyone runs it locally on their own and provides pr

Jim, what costume will you be wearing? Good luck to Wonder Woman Karen. Actually I think I saw another Wonder Woman last night while crossing Hollywood and Vine after the Phamtom Of The Opera show. Shouldn't she be resting for the race?

I'll probably just go with my avatar, as it seems to fit pretty well. You know those super heroes, always rushing around to save the world.

Well this is a little later than usual (the race is in two weeks from Sunday) as Karen was not even going to run the Chicago marathon due to a foot injury in the late spring. However, the rehabilitation went really well and she has been able to get her distance back up remarkably quickly. She will be running again in support of St. Jude's Children's hospital which is a special charity for us. If you would like to donate you can do so at

Edit: She will not be running as Wonder Woman but only as her alter ego this year.

Nope, no baby. She did better than her first marathon at 4:50:33 but not as well as her personal best last year of 4:39:07. Considering she was not even going to participate 2 months ago, I think that is pretty damn good.

More importantly she raised $1478 for St. Judes. Thanks to all for your participation and support.
