THE STORY:

Hey Everyone!

SO, I ran the ING NYC Marathon last November (no big deal). It was truly the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE (read my marathon recap here) which means my future wedding day has some serious competition.

So, guess what? I’m back to run another race, the NYC Half Marathon, but this time – there’s a completely different reason for it...

So, here’s the deal…

You see, when I ran the 26.2 miles in November, I was doing it selfishly. Yes, I joined Team in Training (benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) but that decision was more so about having a community of new runners and access to a training program. I felt great about raising money for the organization, but I did have a difficult time finding a personal connection to the cause. While I’ve known people who have been impacted by cancer, I have been fortunate enough to never have been impacted personally…until now. 

Now I’m running for my mom, Jean Anne, who was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer (Stage 4) over the holidays.

It all happened so fast so let me bring you up to speed (or you can read about it here):

Mom hadn’t been feeling well and had been experiencing acute back pain and some cramping in her abdomen. She made appointments with several different doctors and they diagnosed her with things that seemed to line up with her symptoms. On Christmas Day, Dad and I took her to the emergency room because she was in pain, running a fever, and looked jaundice. We thought it was a kidney infection so when they came back and said that her scan showed masses on her liver and kidney, we were absolutely shocked…devastated.

We’re up against the most difficult journey we’ve ever experienced but we’re coming into it  armed and ready with a team of doctors we trust, loving friends and family, my incredibly supportive job, and enough faith and hope to move mountains.

Are you still reading? You are? Really? Kudos to you…I would have stopped paragraphs ago!

FAQ’s

Why are you running the NYC Half Marathon? I’m running it because it’s a healthy and positive outlet to funnel my fears and frustrations into but more importantly, it’s so I can raise money towards pancreatic cancer research. I’m running this because my mom can’t…not that she would want to if she could…she’d much prefer to quilt or decoupage something in the crafting/sewing room (it used to be my childhood bedroom but I suppose it’s time to let that one go, right? Mom wins that one).

Why are you running with Project Purple? Project Purple raises $$$ for pancreatic cancer research and I’d like to find a cure sooner than later. Like, really soon.

Will you wear a hair bow during your run? That is a ridiculous question because the answer is obviously YES. I usually rock a white hair bow but since the signature color of pancreatic cancer is purple, I’ll make sure it’s the biggest purple hair bow on the planet. Maybe I’ll ad some polka-dots.  Hair bows have become my race signature and I have established a social media hashtag for it: #coolbowem

Will you eat ALL the pizza when you're finished? If there’s any left when I’m done…because that’s all I’ve been eating now (Hello, emotional eating Emily…I’ve missed you! Psych).  Like, why can’t there be pizza cancer instead of pancreatic cancer?  

Are you still single? Yes… I think it has something to do with the hair bows and pizza shortage.
