For those that know me, you are aware I am an open book with my thoughts and feelings. Along this journey born out of my losses, I have probably not held back one single thought or emotion and whether that is a good thing or bad thing………..it is me. I don’t pretend I am strong […]

I thought I would provide an update as it has been a few weeks. Overall, we made some great progress on the fundraising side of things. I would say I was also making progress on the training side but on Sunday, while goofing off with my son, I either pulled a muscle (which is what […]
This was a recovery week which I am finding is great on the body but tough on the mind. The workouts are certainly scaled back as my body is allowed to heal before ramping up again but my mind goes crazy. The mental challenge is not the taper but the extra time that allows my […]
It has been a while since I posted an update. At a high level I can tell you my journey to Kona has been quite an emotional one. As a coach I always speak about the journey being what you will remember on race day. The fear, obstacles and struggles are what make race day […]
To those that have known me for most of this journey, you know I am an open book with my emotions. I am sure the jury is mixed on whether it is a good thing or not. I believe being open has helped me to raise money and touch lives but I know some probably […]
It was a tough week. Almost as soon as I posted last week’s update talking about the joy of no pain…..pain showed up in my surgically repaired right foot. This coupled with a scheduled colonoscopy had a significant impact on my training volume. The worst part about pain for me in general is the uncertainty […]
Well this felt like a recovery week on all levels. It certainly was for training which my body needed. On the fundraising front, a late week push helped generate some funds but I had expected the week to be more about planning anyway and we made good progress there. Fundraising We generated approximately $1,800 this […]
It was a strong week for training and fundraising although I really need to improve on reaching folks that do not know my story. That is the only path to reaching $130,000 and to date all donations have come from individuals that personally know me and/or my wife. I have said this before but on […]
A lot happened on the #Road2Kona this week and I believe the most important is a development that allows ‘you’…..yes I mean you….. to join the journey and raise money on your own. We will announce more details this week but this news ties to a Community Team. Beyond my personal fundraising page, you will […]
One more week in the books. It is freaking me out how fast it is going but such is life. Time to kick things into high gear: FUNDRAISING Consistent with prior weeks, I made a lot more progress on planning and behind the scenes items and prepping for what I hope will be donations. That […]
I am truly honored to have to privilege to be a part of the 2014 LLS Man & Woman of the Year campaign supporting Christopher Wilno and the We Will Find a Cure team. We are a small group that has set a big goal.
I have worked for LLS in the Team In Training Campaign since the fall of 2011. In the fall season of 2013 I was privileged to work with Chris Wilno and Lori Jomski, where we lead over 120 marathoners to raise almost $400,000 for LLS.
Javier’s journey with LLS began in Feb. 2008, when he trained with Team In Training (“TNT”) for the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon. Javier joined TNT because his mother was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and we are still searching…
