honoured teammates

Ran 6 miles with the Team Saturday morning, in the snow, uphill both ways, with a wind in my face... okay, so not uphill both ways, but otherwise... all true.

Then we had our "Honoured Teammate Picnic", where some of the people we are running for come in and share a post-run breakfast with us, and talk about their experiences with blood cancers, with Team in Training and the LLS, and about how what we do has impacted their lives. Very inspirational...

The photo below shows me still red-faced from the run, and our honoured teammate Carsten and his sister. Carsten was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was in kindergarten... he told us that some treatment days were really painful... "kind of like some of your long runs"...

Kind of puts things in perspective, doesn't it?
