Running

I started running in college, but didn’t consider myself a “runner” until May 2008, when I decided that I was going to train to run a marathon.  I began training with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, the world’s largest endurance sports charity program.  TNT gave me an incredible network of friends, allowed me to contribute to an awesome cause, and introduced me to sport of running, which I have come to love.

To date I have completed four full marathons, eleven half-marathons, and countless road races of shorter distances.  Target race for 2012: Chicago Marathon.

  1. What a great Ben Cheever quote — so true for me, too! Looking forward to following your training for Philly, which I’ve heard is a fantastic marathon on a flat, fast course!
