Get running and get giving! See more
I have been training since June for the longest run of my life - 13.1 miles. A half marathon to benefit the LLS. For the last 5 months, this event has been all about me - a way to get into shape, a new personal accomplishment, trying to feel younger now that I've crossed the 40 threshold. Then A very dear friend of mine asked a simple question - "how much have you a raised for the cause?" Doh! I hadn't even considered anything more than the entry fee! She then challenged me to raise as much as possible between now and the race (11/20/11) and she will match, dollar for dollar whatever I raise! A challenge? With an amazing offer? I could not pass this up. So here I am, asking for money to support the great efforts of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please help me meet my fundraising goal and I will run run run like the wind in your honor. Thank you!
