I know I haven't blogged in a while. I did the wedding thing! It was great! then the honeymoon. what was GREAT! and then getting back to real life, which was both great and hard.
And sometimes it's hard to just start blogging again. Like, I feel the need to catch up, and write about everything that happened. But I don't have the energy, or time, and so then.....i just don't blog.
But, now I have something very specific that I'd like to share. I have seen a few of my other friends doing this, and when the opportunity popped up, I had to jump on board. I have joined Team In Training and am raising money to fight leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma! My loved ones have been fighting cancer for the last few years. My husband's father passed away in December after a long battle with Thyroid cancer. And my favorite aunt Lisa has been undergoing treatment for best cancer since Jan. of this year. Cancer is a very scary thing, and most people these days know someone who has been through treatment or lost a loved one. I am proud to be raising money for such a great organization. They fund grants for researching new medications and treatements. They also have survivors on the team with us, running race! It's so inspirational!
I have set the bar high - I am going to raise $3,000 by the end of October. I know I can do it! If you can, please make a donation to support me on this cause. You can make one to my fundraising page at http://pages.teamintraining.org/los/sbhalf09/mbush3
Our first team run is August 1st. And I'm going to blog on here about how the training is going :)
Also, if any of you are interested in joining Team In Training - they have branches all over the country and they train people who have NEVER run a race before.
So long for now! And thanks for your support, even just reading this blog or checking out my fundraising page. Thanks!!!
