Connection to the Cause (at 7 miles)

There's a reason I've started running and not necessarily for myself as a leukemia survivor. There are thousands of people with leukemia or lymphoma that are fighting for their lives. Last weekend I attended an event for Team In Training called "Connection to the Cause"—we were reminded of why we are taking so much time and effort running, sweating and fundraising. Everyone has a person they are running for or in memory of. Seeing all the names on the screen gave such a bigger purpose of what we're doing.

I know I didn't quit with the chemo, so I'm not quitting with the run. I've got a lot of support too: check out the pics of my team in NY, and of me and my mentor, Sophia.
