No, I won’t be participating as a charity athlete for the American Cancer Society this year and it is killing me to not be a part of it! As you have seen from the blog, we have moved once again (and this is it!!!!), so I am amongst boxes and craziness…but I have also hurt my hip and so completing a triathlon and marathon within 3 months of each other is not attainable for me at the moment. This would have been my third year in a row to raise money for the ACS and this year was very important to me as I have recently lost my grandmother to cancer. The triathlon is this weekend and the marathon is in October…so best of luck to all of the participants!!!
For information on how to be part of the American Cancer Society, please go to www.charityrunner.org and contact your local branch…it is so worth the time, training, pain and emotion that you put into getting ready for the race because you are raising money to help find a cure.
