I wrote my 2011 resolutions few weeks back on my main blog(http://sudsblog.com/?p=738). One of the resolutions was to either run Seattle Marathon or Seattle to Portland bike. I finalized decided to run the marathon. I also joined Team in Training to train for the marathon. Team in training raises awareness about Leukemia & Lymphoma and raises funds for it.
This was great as I was going to do 2 things which I had never attempted in life run a marathon and raise money for good cause. In past few days I have been really moved by some of the stories of survivors of blood cancer. I hope the cause I have taken up will continue to be part of my life for a long run.
