I ran my first ever 5k in 2009
Since then I wouldn’t say I have done a LOT of races, but I’ve done my fair share; half a dozen 5ks, two ten milers and a half.
So yea, I’m sure you can guess where I’m going with this…
I’m running a marathon!
I am going to be training with Team in Training and couldn’t be more excited and terrified. I have two friends who have lost their spouses to Leukemia and knew I wanted to honor their lives by raising funds to help find a cure for those currently fighting and who will fight blood cancers.
I plan to blog as much of my journey as possible so please check back here regularly! I also have a page on the TNT site. You can visit that page here. I will be doing some fundraising between now and the New Year but plan to kick it into full gear January 2012.
Here’s to an exciting and challenging six months ahead!
