Many of the fundraising events that I take part in over the course of the year involve some sort of athletic component. I started out primarily as a walker, first in smaller events like the Relay for Life and the Race for the Cure and building up to the 60 mile stroll that is the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure. Over time, I found that I was walking so much that I even named my blog after it.
Starting in 2008, I challenged myself to take on something new: running. I’ve never been a runner and the truth is, I’m still not much of one now. But the more time I spend running, the more I have come to enjoy it. Each year, I find myself taking on new races, some of which are related to my cancer research advocacy efforts and some that are just for the challenge of it. In an effort to keep myself accountable, I’m dedicating this part of my webpage to my burgeoning running habit.
“If you run, you are a runner…there is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” – John Bingham
