  1. Oh, you silly girl.....There is no turning back now. I am definately commited to doing a 1/2 marathon and when I am actually paying attention to how far 13.1 miles is, believe me I get a little nervous. But I know I can do it and I know that I will do it for Mason, for Gary, for Jayden, for Ava, for Cole and Tanner. This is only a few of the JM kids that I personally know. I recently sent my story to the S2H group and this is what I said about my experience.
    "I have a body that can function. I am able to walk and breathe on my own. I have all the freedom one could hope for and until now I was doing nothing about it. I was choosing to waste away my healthy body as I watched my nephew's body be destroyed by this ravaging disease. He did not choose this disease. It chose him. I am no longer going to sit back and watch and wonder what I can do. I will run the streets of Seattle in June 2011 for the Cure JM team in honor of Mason. I WILL joyfully and tearfully cross that finish line no matter how long it takes. I CAN and I WILL."
    Erika Bradford, I could not do this without your support and inspiration. Stand tall and be proud you are changing lives my friend.
