The bandanna ran its first structured race. With my trainer Nicole, I ran in New York in support of a friend’s son who organized a 1-mile fundraising run in memory of his grandmother.

It is finished!
At about 12:15 pm, on August 15, 2015, Nicole Kung and I ran 1.5 miles in solidarity with Mason Ntula and his family and friends. Mason organized Koko’s Color Run to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research in memory of his grandmother, Jo Ann “Koko” Mason who died from pancreatic cancer in 2015.
This is the first time I have done such a run. I have done walks; I did a walk/run of a 5k for Pirates Charities, running about 1k.
It took a great deal of support and encouragement to do the run:
My family – Tricia, Sean, and Eric.
Nicole, of NK Body Philosophy, who I have been working with since January. She designed a training program and ran with me.
Joel Hanisek, who ran with us in Dublin, Ireland.
Leslie Mardenborough, who made a contribution within hours of learning I planned to run.
