Two Weeks and Counting

Magic BandsWith less than two weeks to go we are looking forward to our adventure south to Disney World and to Run For Our Sons with PPMD. Last year it was such a positive and meaningful experience we knew we wanted to go right back and do it again. I never would have dreamed we would go back with a team having raised almost twice as much as last year.

We’re grateful for our team and for everyone who has supported us. Since 2011 we’ve raised almost $13,000 to help improve the quality of life for boys like our William and move us ever closer to ending Duchenne. Personally this is a huge accomplishment. Both Anne and I have personalities that prefer to work “behind the scenes” but this cause is so dear to us that we are compelled to get out and make a difference. We’ll celebrate this small step forward at Disney but the work isn’t complete.

I’ve been successful in my “Holiday to Holiday” run streak. With two days to go I’m sure I’ll make it, having run over 250 miles just this December. One of the reasons I wanted to do this was to better focus on my upcoming Run for Our Sons race and be as prepared as possible. As the month moved on I was increasingly mindful of who and what I’ll be running for. These thoughts will continue right through the marathon and only increase as the race becomes more difficult. I’ll be ever mindful that I’m running for those who can’t. Having now run 8 marathons I can tell you the struggle of those final few miles doesn’t compare to the struggle our boys and their families’ must endure.

William is looking forward to his vacation in sunny Florida. Everything is arranged and all we must do now is pack our bags and head to the airport. As a family we’re all a little apprehensive about the changes we’ll encounter this year. William has expressed concern that he will probably not be able to transfer and enjoy as many rides as last time. It’s amazing how pragmatic he is about this at just 11 years. It still saddens us because we know he loves the rides. Last year he rode Thunder Mountain at least a half dozen times. Despite this it will be impossible not to have a great time.

Again, thanks to all who have supported us. It’s greatly appreciated and you are helping to make a difference in the lives of many.

Meet Our Run Disney Team: Run4Will

Maggie Novello

Maggie and Anne grew up in the same rural neighborhood in New York State. Anne would “sneak” through the neighbor’s yards to play with Maggie, they would spend entire summer days in Maggie’s pool, Anne would often help Maggie clean her room, and they would often ask to eat at each other’s houses depending what was on the menu.

Hometown: Middletown, NY

Three words to describe you: on the go

What is one random fact about you? I HATE snakes. When I see one, I feel like my heart is going to jump out of my chest and I am actually going to die.

What does running for PPMD mean to you? It means kicking all of my pains and excuses to the curb. It will never come close to the pain that boys with Duchenne and families living with Duchenne go through on a daily basis.

What is your race strategy? My race strategy will be to take each mile in stride and do a lot of talking/catching up with my childhood friends.

If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavor, what would it be? If I was reincarnated as an ice cream flavor it would have to be Chunky Monkey. (or Whirled Peace)


Kristina Solan Berryman 

Kristina, Maggie, and Anne went to grade school together.  They played together during many a recess, attended each other’s awesome birthday parties and sleepovers and survived the pre-teen years together without unfriending each other.  They have a lot of catching up to do during the 10K 😉

Hometown: Burlingham, NY

Three words to describe you: non-stop mama, loyal!

What is one random fact about you? I played women’s rugby at SUNY Oswego, starting scrum half. 🙂 I’m not big but I was fast! The Black Widows.

What does running for PPMD mean to you? Well at first and at the very forefront of reasons, it was to support my dear child-hood friend and her family whose strength is inspiring. But after some reflection and reading more about the disease and how it can effect any boy, I realize as the mother of 3 young boys and an aunt to 6 nephews, I could hear that diagnosis myself someday.

What is your race strategy? Be one with the tortoise. Slow/brisk and steady mi amigas, slow/brisk and steady. 🙂

If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavor, what would it be? Though it is not my favorite flavor, I would pick that bluish/rainbow sherberty one. Isn’t it called Superman or something? Always makes me think of childhood and special ice cream trips to Dick Zogby’s.

Anne Hancock

William’s mom.  Anne was born and raised in Orange County, New York by teacher parents with her older brother, Kevin. She ran winter track in high school for one week and then her running career ended abruptly due to cold temperatures.  She is hoping to experience a running Renaissance one of these days because the benefits are tremendous on many levels.

Hometown: Middletown, NY

Three words to describe you:  empathetic, conscientious (but not that organized), jovial

What is one random fact about you?  I am a drill sergeant about making beds the “right” way.  I may have missed a calling.

What does running for PPMD mean to you?  In a sense it’s one of the few ways I feel I can give back to a community that has done so much to improve the standard of care for not just my son but all children and young adults living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  It has also provided me with a good excuse to start taking better care of myself as well as a way to reconnect with some amazing people I grew up with.

What is your race strategy?  1st, finish and 2nd, finish without hurting myself.  

If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavor, what would it be?
Chocolate chip cookie dough !!!!!


Bill Ozaslan 

Bill runs with the Melrose Running Club, is a Marathon Maniac, and at last check has raced almost 500 miles in 2013. He’ll be tackling the Dopey Challenge consisting of the 5K, 10K, Half & Full Marathon.

Hometown: I live in Melrose, and consider Boston my hometown.

Three words to describe you: Shy, Bookworm, and (somewhat) Random.

What is one random fact about you? So there are so many random things about me, like mountain bicycling, and three cats, Jackson, Sapphire and Maya.

What does running for PPMD mean to you? I don’t have children of my own, other than the three furkids mentioned above. So, to support a worthy cause like PPMD is an honor and privilege. So many revolutionary things happened in the science and medicine of the last century. Eradicating polio or malaria started with small efforts, and grew into a scientific enterprise. There is hope, and it is out there. We just need to find enough support to make that hope possible.

What is your race strategy? My race strategy is to go at your own pace, and aim for negative split, while treating fellow runners with appropriate runners etiquette.

If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavor, what would it be? I like pistachio, mint, butterscotch mix with hot fudge to top it all, perhaps I’m many things to many people.


Chris Hancock

William’s dad. The 2014 WDW Marathon will be Chris’ 6th time running for Run For Our Sons. Previously Chris ran the 2011, 2012, & 2013 Boston Marathons, the 2012 Timberman Half Ironman & the 2013 WDW Half Marathon for PPMD.

Hometown: I’ve lived in 6 states and 2 countries so I’m not sure. Some of you know what I’m talking about.

Three words to describe you: Persistent, Creative, Inquisitive

What is one random fact about you? I love tech and gadgets. So does William. Among many things, we’ve got about 15 Macs. The most ancient are over 20 years old.

What does running for PPMD mean to you? Running for PPMD is a calling. It gives meaning to all the training I do year round. Every bit of awareness and fundraising we do supports a better quality of life and moves us closer to a cure for boys like William.

What is your race strategy? Run smart! I’m racing for time so hope to hold back appropriately for the first 15 miles, run strong and steady for the next five, and then hang on for dear life for the last 6.2.

If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavor, what would it be? Mint Chocolate Chip!

Streaking Through the Holidays

fast turkeyThis year, like last, I’m attempting to run every day from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. Last year it was a success and led to a noticeable fitness boost leading into the Disney Half Marathon. I hope to repeat the same formula leading into the Disney Marathon on January 12th, again running for PPMD.

While I’m not a run streaker, I find a shorter streak now and then to be productive. It helps me budget my time, better modulate my training paces, focus on recovery from and for harder efforts, and generally deepens my endurance. Due to this I’ve been known to run short streaks, usually a month at a time, as part of my training for goal races.

Having started early, I’m already 12 days into this year’s Holiday streak. So far so good as I’ve already survived a 2000 mile Thanksgiving road trip, and successfully worked runs into each day. Running daily is usually easy, but the devil’s in the details. Travel, weather, work, and fatigue from life in general impose themselves at odd times creating a few obstacles. Of course, if I get sick or have concern for injury the streak will not be the priority.

Running a marathon (or any goal race) is as much about the process of getting to the starting line well prepared as it is about crossing the finish line. For that reason I’m mindful that this streak is part of the process leading to the Disney Marathon in January. When I’d rather not go out in the cold or would rather just take the day off, I’ll have extra motivation knowing I’m running for a greater cause.

For now, I’m healthy and looking forward to running straight through the Holidays towards to the Disney Marathon in January.

The Season’s over. Taking stock and look ahead.

I had intended to use this blog as a place to chronicle my monthly races. That didn’t happen so here’s a quick recap of my late summer and fall races. I had some hits, a couple home runs and a big strike out. In all it was a success, I had fun and grew as a runner.

Beach to Beacon 10K – Cape Elizabeth, Maine
I maintain a “to do” list of races that I hope to pick off, hopefully a new one each year. This was on that list.

  • Logistics! This race requires plenty of logistics for a 10K (Travel, day before packet pickup, hotel, bike to satellite parking, bus, the actual race, another bus ride, and finally a bike ride back to the hotel.
  • The race itself went well running 19:01/19:02 5K splits despite struggling on the 6th mile.
  • I buried myself and ran the last .2 in 63 second finishing so exhausted I walked right by Joan Benoit Samuelson without noticing (I realized in the post race photos.)
  • Result 38:03 & 186th out of 6245. Meb Keflezighi won my age group.

Labor Day Classic 5K – Biddeford, Maine
This race is hosted by Brian Denger, a fellow Duchenne Dad & runner; the race is a fundraiser for PPMD. I’ve wanted to do it for a while and am happy we could work it into our schedule this year.

  • The course had a couple honest hills and the weather was sunny and humid so running hard was a challenge for all.
  • I ended up dropping off pace during the third mile despite spending much of it running down hill.
  • It was nice to see so many from the Duchenne community come out for the race and William got a ride from Patrick Denger in his new van, which made him very happy.
  • Result 18:38 & 2nd place.

Lone Gull 10K – Gloucester, Mass
I ran this race as part of the USATF New England Grand Prix with the Greater Lowell Road Runners. This was the second of three Grand Prix races for me this year.

  • I Ran hard from the gun and none of it was easy but I kept the splits steady running 18:50/18:47 5K splits and all within 7 seconds per mile.
  • The weather was fantastic. Sunny and 65 along the Atlantic coast with a very fast field of runners.
  • Result 37:37 & 123rd place.

That’s the Atlantic Ocean behind me. You can’t see it? Neither could I.

Nahant 30K – Nahant, Mass
Another Grand Prix race with GLRR.

  • The race was billed as “hilly” and flat it wasn’t. Fortunately, the hills were short and that suits me well as I can just power over and down them.
  • I started conservatively, running the first few miles in the 6:40s, hit the half marathon at around 1:28 low, then hammered the rest of the way, full of energy, to an almost 2 minute negative split.
  • This race indicated better fitness than I expected and got me thinking about running a fall marathon. No good ever comes from these kind of thoughts.
  • I was able to score for both the team and individually in my age group, which is an accomplishment for anyone running a Grand Prix race.
  • Result 2:04:55 (PR) and 73rd place.

Baystate Half Marathon – Lowell, MA
Since the spring, this was my goal race for the Fall and I’ve wanted to run this half since running the Baystate Marathon in 2010.

  • I feel the Half Marathon is my best distance and this was my best execution so far.
  • The best way to describe my run was systematic, cold, analytic, and emotionless and I executed my race plan with the steadiness of an assassin.
  • The last three miles were my fastest and I negative split the race by three seconds.
  • Result 1:22:30 (PR), 21st overall, and 2nd in my age group.

I set up my own aid station.

New Jersey Trail Series “One Day” Marathon – Augusta, NJ
I’ve wanted to run one of the New Jersey Trail Series races for a while so when Nader Abadir extended the invitation I gladly accepted. This race was 28 miles from Anne’s parents house in Middletown, NY so we coordinated it with a visit and I just slipped out Saturday morning for the run.

  • I initially signed up for the 50K but dropped down to the Marathon distance (my third this year) to take yet another shot at running a sub 3 hour marathon–always risky business.
  • The race was run on a one mile loop upon a county fairground with nine 90 degree turns and one 180 degree turn per lap. That’s over 265 turns in total, including twenty-seven 180 degree turns. How crazy is that? Very crazy!
  • I took manual splits rather than auto GPS splits and discovered the time difference per mile between my GPS pace and the race clock was greater than 10 seconds per mile and NOT in my favor. Regardless I ran strong averaging mid 6:40 miles while my watch was showing mid 6:30s pace.
  • Everything worked out fine until about mile 23 when I bonked and my race collapsed completely. After a 6:50 per mile average through 22 miles this happened: 7:27, 7:48, 10:09, 14:23, 17:45, Finish. That’s an incredible collapse but when I realized I would finish slower than 3:10, I decided not to kill myself and walked much of the last lap with Anne, William, and little Jake (Anne’s cousin Jennifer’s son).
  • Result 3:22:42 and 2nd place.
  • Interestingly, recovery was almost instant and I’m back at it, fired up more than ever to run strong at Disney.

Next up is some turkey gobbling 5K in Indianapolis on Thanksgiving day and the Assault on Mount Hood XC race here in Melrose, MA in December. Despite not running the marathon I wanted to in NJ, I’m feeling healthy, strong and light on my feet. This is all encouraging as I’m less than 2 months away from running the Disney Marathon.

Why I’m doing this 10K?

Why I’m doing this 10K…an enumerated list????

#1 My son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

#2 PPMD and Run for Our Sons raise money to support research.

#3 the 5K was sold out….

#4 It’s a great excuse to visit Florida in January when Massachusetts is your home.

#5 I sorely need to stop getting fat……

In truth I find myself pondering why I am doing the Disney 10K often, if not everyday.  The reasons hit me at random moments; while I vacuum; while I cook; while I sit at my desk at work; and while I commute to and from work.  Not all of the reasons are profound as you can see above.

As we get closer to January and as we get closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, a time for counting our blessings, I am feeling inspired to share some of my more considered reasons.

#6 humility

hu·mil·i·ty
noun \hyü-ˈmi-lə-tē, yü-\
: the quality or state of not thinking you are better than other people : the quality or state of being humble

Last January was our first PPMD Disney Marathon weekend.  Put simply, it was a powerful experience.  Being with other families like us was life affirming.  But what stood out to me and what became my biggest take away from the event were the people we met that didn’t have sons with DMD.

One family with a young son and daughter were participating in multiple events.  Naturally I assumed their son had DMD.  Heck I assumed every boy there had DMD, my stealthy powers of MD identification were in full swing.  But this family was there for a friend’s son, not their own.  I was relieved for them and their son and thought wow that’s really cool.   Compassion and Love

A young woman, I think in her late twenties, was there with her husband.  She said she lived locally and participates in the weekend every year in honor of her cousin.  Her cousin who can no longer cheer her on because he cannot travel by plane anymore.   But she still shows up for him and boys like William every year.  She trains for the event throughout the year despite having a job, three kids and a full life.  Dedication and Love

I took these memories home with me and internalized them.   Then two of my friends from grade school volunteered to do what this family and cousin do, Run for Our Sons!

Maggie and I grew up in the same rural neighborhood in NY State.  We went to school together from 2nd grade through high school but lost touch in our junior year of college; I would bet this was my fault.  Kristina and I haven’t seen each other since 8th grade graduation; we went to different high schools the following year.   But despite the passage of time and lack of regular communication they want to be there for me.  Their selflessness is overwhelming and I am beyond grateful for them both.

The irony of my life with DMD is how much I have stretched and grown as a human being and this is where the humility comes in.

I am doing this 10K out of humility.

I am humbled by the strangers I met last January, my old friends who are on the 10K journey with me, my friend who keeps me going with my training by texting me about her own, and my old friends from grade school, high school and college who have donated to this cause despite the fact that there are so many causes out there in need of support.

When God closes a door, he opens a window.  Thank you for all crawling through that window and bringing me out of the darkness.  The darkness can swallow you but the light of love will keep you going.

A season of hope…

When we were first adjusting to life in the shadows of Duchenne, we didn’t know what to tell William or how to explain what would happen to him physically.  He was 5. How does any parent know what to say to a child whose future has been irrevocably changed?  My explanation at the time felt lame.  I told him that his muscles didn’t work like other kids and one day he might need a wheelchair to get around but doctors and researchers were working very hard to find a way to help his muscles stay strong.  I didn’t tell him he would stop walking before the age of 10.  I didn’t tell him cures are complicated and that everyone’s DNA and body chemistry make it difficult to find that one magic pill.  How could I?  Chris and I were devastated, heartbroken, and scared.  We worked hard to keep this from William and give him “normalcy.” He was a baby after all.

William asked me one night before bed to put a sticky note on the bookcase near his bed.  He wanted to know right away if they had found a cure as he slept.  So that night I wrote, “No cure found overnight, but they are still working.”  This note has been there ever since, saying the same thing.  As I wrote it out I thought I would never write “They found a cure William, you are going to walk again!”  Never!  I didn’t actually have hope or believe that the future was anything but bleak.

I was wrong.

First, life despite DMD has been normal, DMD is our normal and life is good.

Second, I am not a liar anymore, I have hope!  Yesterday Sarepta Therapeutics announced that they were submitting a New Drug Application to the FDA for Eteplirsen; a potential therapy for skipping the broken Exon that prevents the muscules from producing enough dystrophin.  In this case, Eteplirsen skips Exon-51 (William’s version of DMD is an in-frame deletion of exons 45 and 46). While this drug isn’t an immediate cure for many boys it’s an important milestone for all.

Pat Furlong, president of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy said it best in her blog posting yesterday, “This is a great day for the Duchenne community. Where at one time we saw nothing but a hopeless end, now we see nothing but endless hope. We are thankful to this community for all the work it has done together to raise awareness about the urgency to find treatments for all patients.” Yes, Pat, yes!

For the many wonderful people who have supported PPMD on William’s behalf, thank you!  You have given us and all families that live with Duchenne the gift of hope, and that is a gift not easy to come by.

-Anne

2013 Boston Marathon

Boston, Patriots’ Day, Monday, April 15, 2013

Patriots’ Day, Monday, April 15, 2013 is a day we won’t forget. Much has been eloquently written about the day after 2:49pm. Below are my experiences prior to the tragedy.

ImageFor me, this Patriots’ Day was my third running of the Boston Marathon. As I did the previous two times, I dedicated my run to the battle against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which afflicts my 11 year old son William. I run in support of PPMD’s “Run For Our Sons.” Of the many reasons why I run, this is most meaningful. Anyone who has run for a cause they believe in so deeply will tell you it gives you wings.

It is a calling.

The Journey to Boston

Image

At the finish of the 2012 Sugarloaf Marathon

Unlike many who are fortunate to run the marathon for charities, PPMD is given no race entries so donning the Run For Our Sons green at Boston must be earned individually through hard work and sacrifice. For me, that has meant an almost daily commitment to running and training, which I’ve continued for over 4 years now.

Last year, in the heat of the 2012 Boston Marathon, I failed to run my required requalification time. So, despite living 10 miles from the finish line, the road to Boston had to go thorough Sugarloaf Maine five short weeks later. For me, Sugarloaf was a good race but, as is typical in a marathon, it got very tough. During the last miles I turned myself inside out to keep pace and reminded myself how important it was for me to have the opportunity to run again for our sons at Boston. The searing pain in my legs was nothing compared to the heartache of living with Duchenne in our lives, so I carried on resilient to the pain. It was temporary. In the end it took everything I had to requalify under the new and harder standards. I had just 4 seconds to spare.

Fast Forward to the Winter of 2013

ImageHaving just come off a nice Fall of increased mileage I gave myself a very simple training plan: at least 50 miles per week, a long run on Sundays, a mid-week medium-long run, and some sort of weekly speed session only if my legs felt healthy. For the long runs I joined the Melrose Running Club’s weekly “Sunday Long Runs” training series, which was invaluable in getting me through some nasty weather. This simple plan proved it’s worth as I improved my half-marathon time by a minute on a more challenging course in just two months. I entered April feeling good. All systems go.

The Excitement Before the Storm

ImageAs with previous years, William and I took advantage of the Marathon Expo for a fun Saturday in Boston. Sunday I prepped my bag and tried to get a good night sleep. Monday was an early rise, then a comfortable bus ride to Hopkinton with the Greater Lowell Road Runners. Pulling into the Marathon Village quickly brought back just how special the Boston Marathon is. It’s truly international. Runners from all over the world are gathered. You hear so many languages and see and meet so many interesting runners.

The Marathon

I entered my coral with very little anxiety, I just wanted to soak it in and relax. I chatted with some of the runners around me, took some sunscreen that was being passed, and quickly found myself underway.

Miles 1 – 10: Unlike in 2011 I was going to take the start easy and held back to conserve energy. With some concentration I ran as calmly as possible. Goal pace never felt so good. This turned out to be a great opportunity to soak in the magnitude of the event and the endless line of runners stretched out up the road ahead.

Miles 10 – 13.1: Despite the ease in my pace I could feel a pressure growing in my gut. I kept on running at goal pace despite the growing discomfort, all the while hoping it would be transient. I hit the half marathon requiring a 46 second negative split to meet my goal. Considering how fresh my legs were I was still running conservatively. Unfortunataly the growing pressure in my gut was causing increased concern.

Miles 13.1 – 16: These miles were trying. I found myself trying to balance pace against the growing distress in my gut. At mile 15.5 my gut won and I was forced to take a seat in the port-a-john at a medical tent long enough to feel a little better again.

Miles 16 – 21: Coming out of the port-a-john, having lost time, I sensed I would soon be running on the edge of what my body was willing to allow for the day. I did some math and realized the half marathon time I would need to run to meet my “A” goal was out of reach and soon started focusing on secondary goals. Perhaps a PR (“B” goal) was still within reach, so I ran strong but cautiously through the Newton Hills.

Miles 21 – 23: By mile 21 it was apparent that the still ongoing distress in my gut was causing new problems. It prevented me form drinking enough water or eating enough gels since mile 10. I was becoming dehydrated and not sweating much. Also, the tightness in my abdomen was causing my left hip to seize, my running form was suffering, and I was hurting. Perhaps if I focused on good leg turnover a requalifying 10 minutes faster than my BQ standard (“C” goal) was still within reach, so I tried to visualize myself on a strong training run and kept moving.

ImageMiles 24 – 26: By this point the ripple effects of my distressed gut had taken over and I was experiencing pain through my entire body. I had slowed down another 30 seconds per mile and, despite the growing urge to be sick, I was mentally trying to imagine just jogging a 5K. I was running a very fine line between decent forward progress and complete shutdown. At this point I knew I wouldn’t requalify by more than 10 minutes. Perhaps I could finish with more than 5 minutes to spare? Some quick mental math told me as long as I didn’t stop I’d make it.

Last 0.2: Despite how bad I was feeling at the end of the race there is always something magical about running down Boylston to the finish. It’s a slight downhill that gently coaxes you to the finish. The crowds are deep, from the barriers to the buildings. It’s a unique experience. Imagine taking a bat at Fenway. Realizing my “D” goal of finishing over 5 minutes under my qualifying time was safe I held my head up and soaked it all in during that last stretch reminding myself not to take the experience for granted.

For the third time, at 1:12:34pm, I was a Boston Marathon finisher, this time in 3:08:50.
