20 days until THE Boston Marathon...

Only 20 more days until the Boston Marathon! I am officially in my "taper mode" before the race, but don't let that fool you, as that still means my run this Saturday will be a half marathon distance(13 miles). I'll be running with other TNT and Team LIVESTRONG teammates Saturday at 7 a.m., meeting at Torrey Pines State Beach (outside parking entrance at Carmel Valley Rd/Del Mar Scenic Pkwy). Come out and experience what TEAM is like! I am also still actively fundraising, which is the whole reason I lace up my running shoes....thinking there will be a day when I can finally sleep in on a Saturday because we found a cure!!!
I owe a HUGE thank you to all of my supporters, as we hit my fundraising goal for the Boston Marathon, and raised $3,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation! THANK YOU!!! I am very aware how tough the economy is right now, and I know that many of your donations came from your heart and were a stretch of your finances in order to help others in need. You are my personal heroes (I hug heroes.). For those that have not yet donated but interested, I am still fundraising and working towards my Cures Rock! Campaign goal of $10,000 this season for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! To donate, please click here or copy/paste this link into your Internet browser: . My sister just added a donation of $520 to my fundraising, which is the latest proceeds from the "Bracelets 4 Cures" --- gorgeous, handmade "Cures Rock!" cancer awareness bracelets, designed for this campaign. 100% of the proceeds go to LLS.

CURES ROCK! (Cancer does not.) Join our campaign to kick cancer to the curb!

Lance Armstrong's "Tour de France" Dedication to Julie

A great reminder that I had armies of support beside me in my fight. (Thanks, Lance!) Even with the recent media, this video isn't about the bike...but the fight against cancer. LIVESTRONG!
