Support our friend Nick who is running the Chicago Marathon this weekend and raising money for Wright Way Rescue in Niles, IL.  After a bus crashed into the facility last week, lets give them a hand with helping build their pets a new home!

Here is Nick’s donation page if you are interested:  https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/NickLarson/wright-way-rescue-runs-the-chicago-marathon

Thanks for visiting my Runner’s Page!

I’m Nick, and I’ve committed to running 26.2 miles for Wright-Way Rescue.

Wright-Way Rescue brought a dog to our family that otherwise never would have been with us.  My wife and I adopted a Husky Labrador mix about 4 years ago, her name is Leila. She is a very loving dog with tons of energy.  She also loves to go on long runs with me.  Without Wright-Way Rescue we have no idea where Leila would be.  I think it’s important to return the favor to the organization that brought our family so much joy.

I compete in triathlons so I will be doing a lot of running, swimming and biking to train.

This will be my 5th marathon, counting the one I’m running in May.  I recently started racing in and try to enjoy racing in between running after two children under 2-years-old.  I live in Niles, originally from Rockford, and I’m a police Officer in Skokie.
