Running my fifth season with Team In Training! I will be running the San Diego Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon in June with my beloved and very-much-missed Austin Team.
It’s been a great journey for me to run for a cause. I have been running races for causes for the past 10 years, but only took up fundraising in 2009 with my first full marathon, the NIKE Women’s Marathon. And I couldn’t have found a better team than Team in Training. I made new friends, pushed myself further than I ever thought I would and have seen the good work the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) does with their patient support.
I am a remote member of the team, so I can’t participate in the team runs, but can’t wait to see everyone in June in San Diego.
We won’t always know whose lives we touched and made better for our having cared, because actions can sometimes have unforeseen ramifications. What’s important is that you do care and you act.
