A few weeks ago, I received a mail from a friend who has started training for her first half marathon. She is training with Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training and has pledged to raise $1,000. I said I would help her spread the word a little. So, here's a little Q&A with Cassandra.
6. Treadmill runner or a runner who prefers to be outside?
I used to be HANDS DOWN the treadmill, but the outdoors is growing on me, especially as it gets hotter. My gym is SO hot, I don't mind hitting the neighborhood if it's cool outside.
7. What's something your learned about yourself through running?
That I and everyone can do more than we give ourselves credit for.
Lastly, here are the words from my friend:
"I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well."
"Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures."
