who are you running for?

today was our honoured teammate picnic... an event we hold early in each season, where all of the team comes together, along with friends and family members, and talk about why we're doing this...

some of us talk about the people who inspire us to get up early every Saturday morning for months to train... who inspire us to go out and ask everyone we meet to help us in our fundraising efforts, to help us find a cure for blood cancers.

some of us talk about our personal connections to blood cancers... our own stories, or those of our children or parents or close friends...

there are usually tears, and cheers and sometimes laughter... today was no exception.

we also ran 5 hot and sweaty miles.

feels good.
