Still Running
Sep 03, 2013 by Ali Daniels

This October I will be running my 9th marathon with Team in Training. 9th! That number still shocks me. I'm not a long distance runner. At no point in my life did I think I would run farther than a 5k.


All of that changed when a coworker and friend of mine was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and I was introduced to Team in Training. While my friend went through treatment to put this terrible disease into remission I trained to run a marathon in his honor. To say that experience was an emotional one is an understatement. His last treatment was on race day - and his strength and perseverance is what helped push me through 26.2 miles.


That was 8 years ago. Today my friend is living happy and healthy and in remission and I am officially hooked on Team in Training. This program gives people an outlet and hope to do something for the people they care about that are dealing with blood cancers. These 8 years have been quite a journey for me, I've lost loved ones to these terrible diseases and I've seen medical miracles.


My journey continues. I'm training alongside some incredible people this season, including some amazing coworkers. This October we will run the distance to honor all patients whose lives are affected by blood cancers.


I’ve also joined the Board of Trustees for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society so that one day we can put an end to blood cancers.


Thank you for your support in this journey!
