How it works is that I commit to fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and they provide me race training with a coach and a local group.
Honestly, I'm really scared.
Two years ago I completed two half marathons while suffering through IT Band Syndrome, which caused excruciating knee pain that left me crying hard through the last mile or two of the 13.1-mile Honored Hero Run in October 2014.
Though I'll be working with a coach and seeing other runners once a week, I'll ultimately be logging hundreds of long, hot miles this summer and fall all alone. So I need your help:
- Ask me how training is going.
- Nicely point out my typos.
- Remind me to stretch.
- Donate if you can.
And I'll keep putting in the miles and keep you updated on this journey.
