Help us raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

Run a marathon? Some might call it crazy. (Tori thinks so! She's running the half-marathon and thinks that sounds tough enough!) But we've been inspired by Tori's sister Mary, and we're setting out to train for the New Jersey Marathon (and half marathon) in May 2010. Along the way, we're working with Team in Training to raise at least $9,000 to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

This cause is close to both of our hearts. We've both had family members afflicted by blood cancers, and Tori's grandma and grandpa on her mother's side both died as a result of them. We will race in honor of them in April, and we think of them every time we lace up for a long run on a weekend morning that we'd otherwise spend sleeping in.

Please give what you can. We're running to save lives - and you can help.

    "I forgot to comment on that last donation. That donation is for Captain Matt, who has taught me to love running and especially to love running with a mission. Thank you Matt, for all you do for TNT and for bringing me so much joy all year round. "

    "After you complete the marathon, you will have run more in 1 day than I have since High School. Congrats! Be careful not to take any wrong turns during the race, 26 miles in long enough :)"
