Each year, around 30,000 people from all over the world line up to run through the many neighborhoods of Los Angeles. For most, running a marathon is a major undertaking, and for many, training for a marathon can provide real motivation to improve overall health, nutrition and even mental outlook towards life. For cancer survivors, training for a marathon may be the first step towards releasing potentially bad old habits and embracing a new life where exercise and proper nutrition play a vital role - at least those are two important elements of a Cancer-Kicking! lifestyle. Many run for charity, others run for a personal best, and some just hope to finish before the event cutoff. Whatever your reason for running may be, we would like to support you and surround you with other people who will support your goals as well. For the 2023 L.A. Marathon, our goal as a Local Chapter is to have at least 10, hopefully more, members of our Los Angeles chapter (other chapters are welcome as runners come from all over the world) commit to running or walking the full distance, motivating each other, and supporting each others. We will make custom running t-shirts for your training (and of course the race) and we will organize several group runs around town to build up to the event in March 2023. We will visit the event expo together as a team where we pick up our race packets, and every chapter participant will be acknowledged on social media for their massive accomplishment. If you have met Andy, you know that he has run this race many times and will be able to provide valuable tips and explain how to avoid pitfalls along the course. It does not matter how old you are, how much you weigh or whether you haven't run in years - Andy's first ever race was a marathon as well and that was almost 100 races ago. You have to start somewhere and we'd love to have you along for this 10 1/2 month-long journey as we prepare to conquer L.A. in March 2023. If you are ready to make the commitment, RSVP to the event so that we can keep you up to date on training, group runs and meetups. We can do this!
