Ready, Set, Go!

February will be here before we know it and that means 2 big things.....1) Frances turns 1 year old and 2) Will and I will run the 2012 Mercedes Marathon in honor of our daughter.

You may recall, we ran last year's marathon when Frances was 4 days old!  While she slept soundly in her little incubator in the NICU, Mommy and Daddy were out pounding the streets of Birmingham proudly wearing her picture on our backs.  Here is a post-marathon moment from last year:
See this face?  This is why we run!
Our marathon training kicked off this past week, so now is the perfect time to start our fundraising for Frances and The Bell Center.  As "Bell Runners," we have committed to raise $2,620.00 in Frances' name.  That's $100 for each of the 26.2 miles we will run on February 12th. 

Below is a link to our fundraising page.  You can donate securely online, or feel free to mail us a check made out to The Bell Center.  All donations go straight to The Bell Center and are tax-deductible.  Please pass this information along to your friends.  The Bell Center could not provide the wonderful services to children like Frances without your help!
