I’m trying something new this year. Something I’ve never done before but am extremely excited about. Now I’ve run races before. A marathon, 5 half marathons, countless 10ks and other shorter charity races, but never have I run a race with the primary intention of raising money for a good cause.
Well, that has now changed. After only some moderate coercing from my friend Kris Conner, I signed up for my first Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training. I have recently felt that my running can provide more than one value. More value than just a means to stay in decent shape and I can’t think of a better way to raise money for a very worthy cause.
My goal is to blog throughout the entire preparation leading up to the Richmond Half Marathon in November. Over the coming weeks I will have more information on my fundraising goal and what I am doing to try to meet that goal. In the meantime, stay tuned for updates from me as I navigate my training and fundraising process.
Blood cancers have most likely touched each and every one of us. I will share my stories here knowing that the money we raise will go directly to helping find a cure.
Stay tuned, and GO TEAM.
