Watch Beau Run!
I'm training to participate in the Rock 'n' Roll Seattle Half Marathon event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives, but this is an especially close cause to my heart as I am completing this event in memory of my grandfather Bill Hardy (pictured right) who passed away from this horrible disease at the young age of 38. I'm also running in honor of all those individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Any amount can help to make a difference.
$ 100 provides 3 patients access to an informational teleconference.
$ 75 is the average cost of tissue typing to become a bone marrow donor.
$ 50 is the cost of a CT scan.
$ 25 covers a single prescription co-payment.
$ 5 is the cost of sending a newly diagnosed patient packet which includes information about their specific disease and support.
If you would prefer to donate via a check, please feel free to email me at email@example.com and I will give you more information.
I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress.

Thanks for your support!
3/9/09: My wife is making dog treats to sell for my fundraising. They are "peanut butter flavored with a honey drizzle" according to her. Our dog Frankie has given them two paws up. They are a $10 donation for each bag of 10 . Just let me know that you want them by leaving a comment with your donation.
3/7/09: Trained at the river this morning. I've been following the run/walk program lately. Basically you run for 4 minutes walk for 2 and you continue on like that through your mileage. It's a great way to train injury free and it gives your body a chance to reocover during your training.
2/9/09: Training is off to a great start. The running is getting there slowly but surely. Jolie and I cross-trained yesterday by going out for a 5 mile hike.
1/10/09: Went out and got new running shoes yestereday and took them for a test run (2 miles) with Jolie this morning.
