Dani Dishes: 6 Days Until The Boston Marathon!

On this episode of Dani Dishes, it's less than a week until marathon #7 & Boston Marathon #3 & time to share thoughts & plans for the weekend!!


A big big big thank you to all who have donated to my Tedy's Team fundraising to help me #FightStroke! As of now (4/14 at 4:07pm) my 3-year total is $23,266.17! I cannot even begin to say how much this means to me. I am part of Tedy's Team and the American Stroke Association in honor of my Stroke Heroes - both of my grandparents and my father-in-law! So thank you all for your love and support!

Donate Here if you are still interested! :)
