Running to keep hearts beating

I run to stay healthy both mentally and physically.  At least that's what I say in public.  The truth is that I run because it is the only way I can get people to stop smoking and take care of their heart.  It really sucks to loose someone to heart disease or stroke.  Last week I lost someone I love, my Mother-in-Law, Elizabeth Puodziukas.  She was 91 years old and experienced more in those years than any of us will ever experience in ours.  From the horrors and trials escaping from Lithuania on foot at the height of World War II as a 20 year old to building a new life in Canada in the wilds of Northern Ontario, she did it without hesitation.  As Sally said so touchingly last Sunday, "Over her 91 years and 16 days her heart beat nearly 3 Billion times and each one with love". We miss you!

Elizabeth, this run's for you:  Reggae Marathon 2011!

Please don't just read this blog post and move on.  Take a moment to make a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario.  Click this link, Run for Heart.  Help me keep hearts beating.

Until next time...
