run run run

it's officially official. my sister sarah and i started our marathon training this past saturday.
i must be a little slow on the uptake, because i just realized i have a training run every saturday morning till april. whew.
the nice part is, the mileage is starting out slowly, which i likey.

but just think of this: every morning, when you are nice and snug in bed, i'm outside with my beanie and gloves on, running in 30 degree weather (it's only going to get colder).

it has been a long time goal of mine to run a marathon, but now i'm doing it for bigger cause than just crossing it off my list. i'm fund raising with my run for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 75% of all the funds raised go directly to research and supporting patients and their families. even a girl on our team has 18 months left of treatments and is training for the 1/2 marathon! talk about inspiring.

i won't start asking for donations quite yet...but if you're interested now my link is on the left hand side of this blog.
for now, i'm going to go defrost in the shower.

I'm so excited for you to be running a marathon, and I'm so glad Sarah's doing it with you! When I was training for my marathon it was the best I've ever felt in my life--despite being sore ALL the time and having constant blisters on my feet! And the feeling of finally accomplishing it is unbeatable! Way to go. :-)
