Training is going great. I have had a long season to get ready for a half-marathon - which is something I needed because I was quite out of shape.
I am comfortably running 10 miles every Saturday. I run about 5 miles on Tuesdays, 6 miles on Thursdays and I crosstrain on Mon, Wed, and Fri.
I can't begin to describe my emotions about all of the remarkable families I have met along the way - some are basking in the light of being 'cured', or at least in remission. Some are in the depths of treatment, and others are still dealing with the shock of a loss of a loved one. I truly can't put into words how moved I am by the strength of all of the families - I think of you and Josh often - practically every run I go on.
Next weekend, the 17th, there is a run called Luke's Run in Campbell Park up here in Campbell. It is a short run (including a mini-run for kids) to celebrate the life of Luke Yden, who passed about 4 yrs ago. There will be a huge group of Leukemia-Lymphoma Society folks there. If you and your family are at all interested in coming, please do so, or even let me know and we could meet.
At the end of all of this, and when my little one starts preschool in a year or so, I plan on going to work for the Leukemia Society. I just feel so touched by the cause.
Thinking of you, Josh, and your whole family,
