Thankful Thursday: 26.2 Sponsors!

I have been blessed to be supported by wonderful friends as I journey toward becoming a marathoner.  Today I'm giving thanks for some of my 26.2 sponsors.

You already met my first sponsor, Ben.  You can read about him here. I've gotta say, this guy is becoming a running force to be reckoned with!

Today I'm thrilled to introduce you to two more 26.2 sponsors!

Allow me to introduce you to my friend (and fellow runner), Erin!  Erin blogs over at School Teacher by Day, Superhero by Night and you can find her on twitter @ecsuperhero.  Erin is a kick-butt teacher - of middle schoolers, no less!  That makes her a hero in my book (and considering my twins just "graduated" from middle school and are entering high school this year, I can fully appreciate the "joys" that are 13 year olds).  Even more importantly, Erin is an awesome mom to two adorable little boys.  She even delivered her second son herself!  I am in awe of this woman and proud to call her my friend.  Thank you, Erin, for having faith in me and sponsoring mile 13.

Also sponsoring me on this journey and running "with" me at mile 14 is Andrea!  Andrea is also an awesome runner of 1/2 marathons (triathlons, too!) and you can find her on twitter @AZLB.  She also blogs about her fun adventures in Arizona at The Love Bug Adventures.  I'm super excited that she is sponsoring me in my marathon journey and can't wait to run with her IRL someday.  Thank you, Andrea!

Do you want to join Ben, Erin, and Andrea and run "with" me? I would LOVE your help in getting across the Grand Rapids Marathon finish line.  I have set up a sponsorship page in which you can help me reach my goal of crossing that finish line.  You can click HERE, or click on the tab above.  I would love and appreciate any support you can give me.  Bloggy and linky love will follow, as well as the chance to sponsor individual miles and run "with" me on October 16th.  I cherish all the love and support my readers have given me this year.  I wouldn't be attempting this race without you.
