Running is something I have had the pleasure of enjoying for many years now. I love to get out on the road in the fresh air and sunshine and run. I have run many miles and many races, including 5 marathons, but it has been 10 years since my last marathon. Clearly, I am in a different age group! I want to run another marathon. I want to run another marathon fast enough to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Honestly, I also want to run a marathon and raise money to help battle childhood cancer. Getting motivated to go the distance, and fast enough, just has not come easy. I have found my motivation for this challenge in an amazing group of young warriors whose challenge has been greater than any I have ever known - the challenge of fighting childhood cancer. The "ups and downs" of training for a marathon is a choice. Fighting childhood cancer is not. Join me, my childhood cancer warriors, Sadie, Gianna, and Luke, and the many families and friends who have fought and continue to fight the battle against childhood cancer by donating to The Truth 365.
Thank you! Althea
