    I am so very, very interested in this mission:) In the past, I have lived with and taken care of many different people who happen to be disabled. You have worked with my friend, Nick R! I was wondering how I might get involved in this program. I am super active and loooove this idea-I still cry EVERY time I see the Hoyt video.
    Much love to you and this adventure.

      Myself and the Athletes in Tandem “Team” just love your challenge! Tired…but we love it! Thanks to the Tri Gals for organizing and allowing us the opportunity to participate. It’s a great “win-win!”

    My name is Jason Bernstein and I am the founder of Angel Runners a running group aimed at raising funds for Angelman Syndrome research toward a cure.

    My son, Reese, is almost 7 years old and 70 lbs. In 2012 my goal is to begin running marathons while pushing him in an adult size jogger, but I do not have the $750 it takes to buy one.

    My last solo marathon will be the LA Marathon on March 18th. Every race after that I would love to be running with my son.

    I’d like to help pace marathons for your athletes. The goal pace I would like to help with is any where from 3:05 to 3:20 goal marathon. I’ve recently started working with Achilles International out of NYC…but would love to help athletes locally. Is this the right organization that does this? Thanks for the input.

      Hi Tony. We have not yet competed in a marathon and 3:05 to 3:20 might be a stretch for us while pushing someone in a jogging stroller. Although I would be up for giving it a try. We would have to find the right course that would be stroller friendly (flat). I have some things in the works that might pan out and could be an opportunity for your pacing abilities.

        Hey Dennis:
        Thanks for getting in touch with me. Are you going to be available tomorrow to chat…say around 10:30 or 11AM? I got your FB message and can give you a call then if that works for you. Let me know.
