TeamLWB in the Marine Corps Marathon

This past weekend the weather was perfect for Team LWB to race in the 6th Marine Corps Marathon!  TeamLWB was small this year, with only six runners making it to the start line.

Team LWB 2013

Although we always have some attrition due to schedule conflicts or injuries, this year’s team was the smallest yet. However small, this group of fundraisers was a mighty band who raised over $12,000 for Healing Homes! Read more.

On the Hunt for A Different Kind of Marathon

If you’re a runner, maybe you’ve been there. You sign up for a race months in advance and then, for one reason or another, you are not able or motivated to really train for it. Maybe life gets hectic with other obligations, maybe you face an injury, or maybe even burn out.  Whatever the reason, race day is suddenly nearly upon you, and you have not trained for it. That was my experience with the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) in Washington, DC this year.  Lucky for me, my friend John was also registered for the MCM and, like me, was looking for a different kind of marathon experience. One day on a bike ride it came to us: “If we can’t set a personal record (PR) in speed, we should set a PR in FUN.” So we put together a marathon scavenger hunt for ourselves and decided to run in costume.

Time is Running Out to Sign Up for the Marine Corps Marathon

It is said there are two types of runners: those who ran Marine Corps Marathon, and those who plan to. If you are the first type, reenlist in 2012. If it’s on your list, commit.

The time has come to run your favorite marathon on October 28 with your favorite charity! Registration for the 37th MCM sold out in record time, and time is running out to register with charities.  Team LWB still has some bibs available and we would love for you to join us! Registration ends August 7.  Don’t miss your chance to run in 2012! The funds raised for the Marine Corps Marathon 2012 will go directly to support orphaned children in China in one of LWB’s Healing Homes.

Run the Marine Corps Marathon With Team LWB!

This week, the 37th annual Marine Corps Marathon made history by recording the fastest sellout of registered runners. This means that if you were not able to sign up but still wish to race in this marathon, you must sign up through a charity partner…which is where we can help you! TeamLWB still has some available spaces, and we would love for you to join us and run to help children in China in one of our healing homes.

Using Social Media to Raise Money and Awareness for a Great Cause

Last year, through the encouragement of my friend and colleague Ben Glass, I became part of Team LWB that ran the Marine Corps Marathon. I knew the cause was great and was particularly overwhelmed by the kindness and dedication of the support crew. Because I couldn’t run this year, my boss Tom Foster and I sat down to think about an innovative way we could help LWB through our firm Foster Web Marketing.

Ben is not only one of the best lawyers and legal marketing coaches in the country, he lives the life that he preaches. As he often says, marketing your law firm or small business is your ticket to a happier life, more time with your family, and the resources to make a difference in causes you care deeply about.  After my experience as part of Team LWB, I knew that we wanted to do more to help through our small business.

We decided to run a Facebook campaign for the Foster Web Marketing fan page. For every person that “likes” the page, we donate $1 to Love Without Boundaries. That’s already resulted in $1,089!

Run Baby Run

This morning as I was slowly jogging around our neighborhood, I couldn’t get the words to the song “Run Baby Run” out of my mind. Not that I know all of the words, nor am I really a runner. But I am in a family of runners and we are all gearing up to “run baby run baby run” – for orphaned children in China.

Love Without Boundaries has a team running in the 35th annual Marine Corps Marathon held in Washington DC on October 31st. My husband, Ben, will be trying to keep up with our oldest son and daughter in this year’s Marine Corps Marathon. Our youngest five children are running in the kids’ Fun Run held the day before, and they’ve already started training – they ALL want to be first. What they don’t realize is that the “real” winners will be the babies the funds will help through LWB.

It’s a Family Affair

One normally thinks of running a marathon as an individual endeavor, but for two of our runners in the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM), it has turned into a family affair.
