Racing to Save Lives
I'm training to participate in the National Half Marathon on March 21st 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.
I am completing this event in honor of all 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. No amount is too small.
Every week , with every long run I have pushed myself to new limits. I remember a time when running 5 miles seemed impossible and this past Saturday I ran 10 comfortably.
THe National Half Marathon is less than 2 weeks away, so I am in taper mode now. But I did run 13 miles last week, so I am confident that I wll be able to finish the race.
Thank you to all those that have already given. And thank you in advance to all those planning to give.
Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
