Another honouree on the list

I just found out that my Uncle's dad is battling Leukemia :(   So in addition to Anna, I will also be running for Joe!  These diseases are so heartbreaking!  Luckily, the survival rates today are so much better than they were even 20 years ago!  I hope that by the time I run in San Francisco, that we will be celebrating victories against the diseases for these two!

And a big thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far!   I just noticed I am currently at number 11 of the top 25 TNT (Team in Training) Fundraisers for the Fall events!  I still have a long way to go, but I appreciate all of the support I have received so far!  Together we can make a difference!!!

On my Way!

As of this morning, I am officially a member of the Team in Training group that is headed for the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco on Oct 17!   While I already knew that I would be training and running with my good friend's daughter, imagine my surprise when an old acquaintance walked into the meeting, destined for the same event!   So now I will have 2 familiar faces going through the training with me :)

On May 5, I will be meeting the rest of the team at the kick-off and May 8 will bring our first group training session (GTS).

So I am home again, training shirt and fundraising website in hand, and am ready to get started!  This is so exciting!
