I'm back!
Jun 09, 2017 by Brittny Yuloo

I ran my first event with Team in Training with one of my dear friends, Justine, back in October of 2014. We ran the Nike Women's Half Marathon in honor of Justine's mom, Joyce. After two cancer diagnoses and a courageous battle, Joyce passed away on June 30, 2014. 

 

Over the last few years, I've heard from more friends and their stories of how cancer has affected them too. Whether it was the loss of a parent when they were young or a friend of theirs who was recently been diagnosed, cancer continues to have a tragic impact on so many of our lives. None of us are safe as all of us, in one way or another, have a family member, friend or loved one whose life has been altered from this disease. 

 

Last July I ran my first marathon in memory of my roommate, Kate. Kate passed away on June 22, 2016 after being hit by a car while riding her bicycle in a crosswalk in San Francisco. While cancer didn't take Kate away from us, my first marathon will always be a special accomplishment, in memory of someone I loved. I have hopes that my second marathon will be equally special, as I will run for those who are fighting and in memory of those we have lost to cancer. 

 

I hope that you will join me in my journey as I train for the Chicago Marathon this October. While I often associate running as an individual sport, it's through organiziations like Team in Traning that I invite all of you to share my goal and bring purpose, awareness, and meaning to my passion.

 

Go Team!

 

With love,

Brittny
