BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
ORGANIZER: American Cancer Society
Weeks away from the marathon, I am feeling pretty confident. I've stuck loosely to my training schedule since February and my sisters have certainly kept me on track, even from a distance! After each of my long runs I look forward to sending my stats to Laurie in DC and Emily in Pittsburgh. Its motivating to hear about their progress, but it also lights a fire when I'm lagging behind. My sisters have been a huge motivator to get me ready to accomplish my goal of running a half marathon, but the 3 B's are standing united in the fight against cancer which is reason we undertook this challenge together. When I feel like I cannot run another step, I have to remind myself why and WHO i'm running this race for. Cancer has disrupted the lives of too many families and friends. I cannot compare my sore muscles to the list of complications associated with the battle against cancer. THAT is why I'm able to push forward. I will be racing against myself and my sisters but we are all racing against cancer...
