Drinkers with a Running Problem
Jul 21, 2014 by Doug Smith



As many of you know, I'm training for the Chicago Marathon in October to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). This was supposed to be a "recovering week," meaning we were supposed to scale back the miles to give our body time to recover from the punishment we've been inflicting on it. Instead, a bunch of friends ran the Napa to Sonoma WIne Country Half Marathon. Team drinkers with a Running Problem set out at 7:00 for 13.1 miles of breathtaking vineyards as far as the eye could see!


I had been looking forward to this run since we registered in December. Unfortunately, I pulled a calf muscle at mile 7, so the rest of it was miserable. The important thing was that I finished. Runners are a special kind of masochists.


I've set an aggresive fundraising goal of $5,000. That might sound like a lot, but it really doesn't take much. Just 100 people donating $50 is all it takes! Whether you can donate or not, please help me "create a buzz" by emailing this page to a few friends and family or share it on social media. The more people know about the good that LLS does, the more we can help them in their mission.
