I started training with team in training to walk a 1/2 marathon.  It has been an exciting, emotional and rewarding event in my life.  I raised almost 3000 for Leukemia and Lymphoma and was able to cross the finish line at the Nike women's marathon in San Francisco this past weekend

friendships with TNT

my journey started and ended with a dear friend that trained with me, Jen.  Her sister in law had been battling leukemia for a second time. i sprayed some purple paint in my hair, ugh that was a mess, for the event.

and they are off: 

starting line up

this is the start of the race for me.  I crossed the start about 16 minutes into the race.  22 thousand strong and 13.1 miles to go through the hills and streets of san francisco.

It was a perfect day, well almost a bit humid 90% and I trainined for cold weather and really wished I would have trained with a running skirt instead of pants.  live and learn.
