Update -- I Walked my 1st 1/2 Marathon
« on: July 10, 2007, 01:04:38 AM »
Hey everyone,

I know I've been off and on the forums lately, but I just wanted to say:  I WALKED MY FIRST 1/2 MARATHON in Alaska!!!  YAY ME!!!  I got a medal and everything  ;D

It is so important to me for a few reasons:

1. It is the first major goal that I set for myself that I accomplished after I was diagnosed in August 2006. 
2. It was the completion of a goal that I had made to help support cancer research after my aunt died from cancer.
3. It was the thing that I used to get myself to focus on something outside of myself.

Seriously, it was all I could do to not cry when I was finished. 

Anyway, I wanted to just let yall know -- I am still on cloud 9 from the experience (the race was on June 23rd)!

Help find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood-related cancers by sponsoring me as I walk a 1/2 marathon as a part of the Maryland chapter of Team in Training.  To find out more and to donate, please click on the following site:  http://www.active.com/donate/tntmd/tswtntmd
