Making The Commitment

Well, last night I made the commitment; I made a promise to myself; I inked the contract; I set the wheels of change in motion; I jumped into the deep end.

I signed up with Team In Training for the 2007 Marine Corp Marathon.

As previous posts have indicated, my reasons for doing so are many. The most important of which is my brother-in-law Billy, who has battled Lymphoma for the past 6 years. For him and those like him who suffer from this disease along with other blood cancers, I hope to raise both money and awareness so that perhaps someday soon, these maladies will forever vanish from the earth.

But also know your prayers and moral support are equally important and deeply appreciated so thanks in advance for any good karma you can direct my way.

I’ll keep you posted on my progress as the months unfold.

Signing up is the first step and sometimes the hardest thing to do! Congrats on making a commitment to a good cause...and you will benefit also! Can't wait to read about your training plan. My best buddy from High School is running this too...her first marathon! Now I know TWO people running in the MC Marathon! Cool!

Congratulations on making the commitment...although reading your post a few months ago about your ties to leukemia, I didn't really doubt that you wouldn't do it!
