Thanks Philly.com Sports for including "TWINS RUN in our family" in article: "Runners gearing up for Sunday's Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon" by Marc Narducci http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/other_sports/169718136.html
Excerpt from article:
"There are many reasons more than 21,000 participants are competing in Sunday's Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon.
For Malinda Ann Hill of Wynnewood, it's a way to raise money for a worthy cause.
For the 41-year-old Hill, competing in this race is one great tweet. She runs marathons and half-marathons and also tweets during the race. So one can check the progress during the race: @twinsrun.
The bereavement coordinator of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Hill is accepting donations on behalf of Alex's Lemonade Stand, the foundation that raises money and awareness for childhood cancer.
She and her twin sister, Leah Connor, often run together, but in this event she will be going solo. The twins raise money for charity and also run in memory of Leah's brother-in-law, Michael Connor, who died of leukemia in 2003, and their grandmother Aileen Hill, who died in July of cancer. They will be participating in next month's Chicago marathon. In addition to the tweets, Hill also blogs about her exploits at www.twinsruninourfamily.com.
So along with her running gear, Hill will have her iPhone. And of course she will be accepting donations.
