Introduction: Melisa (Irish Blue) & Bill

Hi from Bill and Melisa Zachrich of Findlay, Ohio!! We're very excited about the prospect of training for and running the 2011 Disney Marathon with all of you. Last fall, Bill and I ran our first marathon in Chicago. Although Mother Nature was not kind and the temps got a little high, we managed to finish and fullfill a dream.

Bill has remained injury-free in 2009 and completed a second marathon, shaving almost an hour off of his Chicago time! Unfortunately, I became injured training for this marathon and did not race. (I've had a rough year complicated by bursitis in my hip and then patellar tendonitis in both knees.) Fortunately, this gives me plenty of time to recover and come back strong! It's good to have a goal and I'm looking so forward to meeting all of you in 2011!
