Rock N Roll New Orleans Half Marathon: Race in Memory of My Dad by Eileen Connors - over 1 year ago
"On January 21, 2013, my father passed away suddenly from complications from lung cancer. I had planned to run the Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon on February 24, 2013. The race benefits the American Cancer Society and I decided to run In Memory of my Dad. Three of my best childhood friends, who knew my dad well, decided to run the race with me so I had the shirts made up for all of us to wear. It was fantastic! My first half marathon and I had such great support and the whole while running for my dad. "
