The Marathon

What Was I Thinking?

Maybe I wasn't.....
There are certain decisions you make in life that turn out to be life changing events. Deciding to run a marathon just might be one of those decisions. I have committed myself to train for a marathon this June as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Team In Training." We're raising funds to help stop leukemia and other blood cancers from taking more lives. I am running in honor of a coworker who was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia several months ago. I'm running in memory of my mother, who lost her battle with breast cancer several years ago. I am also running for everyone else who has been affected by these cancers.

On June 26th, 2010 along with thousands of other teammates, I will be attempting the Seattle Rock'n'Roll Marathon. Never in my life have I run more than a few miles at a time, so running 26 miles is going to be an incredible challenge. But I am absolutley committed. (Or maybe I should be committed) I ask only that you help with any donation you can afford so that we can help those in their fight against cancer.

Please make a donation to support my participation in the marathon and help advance The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission.
