What a tough @ctmarathon half marathon virtual race!! 🥵🏃 But it's only a fraction of the suffering those have to go through like my wife @ronellefoster waiting for an organ 😔 This is why my #runforsomething is for #organdonation awareness and that being an organ donor can save many lives 💪 Help me spread the word & get the awareness out there 🌍
