Well friends, I'm at it again.
Last year at this time, I signed up with Team in Training to train for my first half marathon. It was an enormous challenge mentally and physically, and to boot I committed to raise $3900 for the cause. The entire experience was challenging and rewarding in ways I wouldn't have dreamt of. Since then, I've run 3 half marathons and a FULL marathon! Oh, and on a whim, I participated in an Olympic Distance Triathalon, something that would not have been even fathomable if I hadn't been training with the run TEAM.
Also, since my start with Team in Training, I've met incredible athletes who have fought and won the battle with blood cancer, and taken in story after story of heart wrenching and heart warming life moments from my teammates' who's lives have been affected by the disease.
What I've come to hold true is that the miles of running and physical exertion we push ourselves through is nothing compared to the battle these individuals have had to face: "Cancer Sucks More". But one thing is clear - the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is impacting the quality of life and treatment for patients and their families in major ways. And, the research and programs that are directly funded by the money I raise is impacting the survival and hope for thousands of cancer patients, blood cancer and beyond. I am proud to be connected to an amazing organization.
I hope you will join me in this adventure to continue to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma society.
