To recognize and honor the efforts of my delightful grandson James, who with undaunted spirit has met the challenges of living with Fragile X, I plan to run the 2018 Chicago Marathon.

The long and arduous training runs, over a 5 month period, has given me the time to think about the challenges faced by people with disabilities every single day of their lives. Their courage is a great motivator. When I feel that I cannot take another step, I remind myself that I have the ability to choose my challenges; people with disabilities do not have that privilege.
