My Very First Blog!

Hello Everyone!! This is the beginning to my blog that I've been promising to start. My apologies for the delay, I've been having a hard time finding the time to write between my new job, wedding planning and most importantly, training for the marathon!

Let me just say this past month has been amazing. Before TNT, (Team In Training- you'll see me write it often) I would often take a yoga or spinning class, or run on the treadmill or weight train. Since starting TNT, my life and body has already changed drastically. We train 5 days a week, rain or shine, heat or heat (it's California folks, it's HOT here) At the start, 2 miles felt challenging and only a month later, we are running 7 miles at a time and although it's still a challenge, especially in this very hot California sun, I can feel my legs getting stronger and I find myself looking forward to that runner's high.

Please don't get the wrong idea- yes, I am a runner, but a very very slow one ;) But hey, at least I'm getting outside and doing something, right? Most importantly, everytime I run, I remember the reason I'm running and that is to help find a cure for the horrible blood cancers out there that claim lives every single day. I want to thank those of you who have already donated and encourage you to tell others about my mission (and my blog)!

Well that's all for now but stay posted for highlights of my 7 mile run this Saturday!

Peace, Love and a Cure- C.
