TIF Spring Update

Image

By: Jake Marcus

Good day all.  I wanted to update everyone on what we have been up to since this Fall. 

I ended up running my Fall Marathon in Chicago and finished with a time of 2:50:28.  It wasn't exactly what I was hoping for but Chicago was amazing as I had the opportunity to see a lot of friends and family and got to see Wrigley Field for the first time in my life for the Cubs playoff game as they embarked on their World Series Run.  Also, I had the chance to run a few miles with my M...

By: Jake Marcus

Over the past few months, we have had a lot to be proud of here at Team Intestinal Fortitude.  So I'll cut right to the chase and give a quick update on all the latest happenings.

Team Intestinal Fortitude Fourth Annual Event

By: Jake Marcus

So we had our 4th annual Team Intestinal Fortitude event last night.  Every year we are very apprehensive as a group of how the event will end up but every year it exceeds expectations.  To say this year was no different is a broad understatement.  This year was by far our most successful event to date.

Over the past few months our committee has been working tirelessly to get an unreal amount and quality of auction items.  Yesterday, me, Brian Teague, Carol Augustyniak, Enid...

Hey everybody, I just wanted to give a quick recap of the inaugural Narragansett Summer Running Festival run this past Sunday 7/21/2013 at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts.  The race included a 5K, 10K & Half-Marathon and was organized by Jason Pagganelli.  We owe Jason many thanks as he made Team Intestinal Fortitude the official race charity which was very cool.  We ended up having 12 people fundraise (fundraising minimums of $200, $350, and $500 for 5...

I googled "Training to Walk a Half Marathon"

The First Resolution I Ever Made That I Actually Stuck To
by. Carol Marcus
 
The first resolution that I made and actually stuck to unfortunately did not play out as perfectly as I had planned. On December 16, 2012, I set out to start training to walk the CCFA Team Challenge half-marathon in June 2013.
 
This decision came about immediately after we returned from the Las Vegas Team Challenge event where our son, Jake Marcus, and his friend Steve Ivanowski participated...
