I decided to put my legs to good use and run the BAA Half-Marathon in October on the Dana Farber team. I'm raising money that will go to one of the top Cancer research centers in the world to hope their doctors and scientists kick cancer's rear end. I'm 4 training runs in and already getting into the groove (was never a regular runner before!) and am looking forward to accomplishing this in memory of my uncle and aunt and all the others I know who were affected by cancer.
I'm pushing myself to find new running routes than the two I always did when I went running (while I am a huge workout junky this is making me run regularly vs biking at the gym!). My second run I totally mapped a route that ended right at starbucks (because, priorities). It was all great until I saw my name on the cup - never.never.never call me that! At least the run and the coffee was good!
I created an instagram account to track my runs and progress towards the half (so I don't clutter up my more artsy IG). It's been fun to find new people to follow for running tips and inspiration.
