Marvelous Weekend,I’m Training Again and The Winner Is…

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope your weekend was as good as mine.

I’m training again! I’ve signed on with “Team In Training” to help raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help find a cure for blood cancers. The event I’m training for is the Honored Hero run, which is to honor those who have battled, are currently battling and in memory of those who have lost their battle with blood cancers. I’ll be running a half-marathon because the event doesn’t have a full-marathon course.

Summer training means 6:00 am training runs to beat the heat and every Saturday a 30 minute drive to meet my team at 6:30 am for our group training long runs. Yeah, no more sleeping in on Saturdays.  Thinking about the cancer fighters and survivors and all that they go through, it’s more than enough motivation for me to get up and go.

There have been amazing breakthroughs and miraculous new treatments and healing therapies once thought impossible. Some of the money that’s raised funds the co-pay and insurance assistance that helps many patients afford the medications they need. Now that’s a Marvelous thing!

Cures today. Not someday. That’s the goal.

My goal is to raise $1500 to help find a cure, I’ve included the link to my fundraising page if you would like to help with this worthy cause and become one of my sponsors.



If you know someone who has battled, is currently battling or someone who has lost their fight, I would love to run in their honor.  Just send me their name and I will wear it on my shirt on race day.

Now here are some eats from my weekend. I will have the recipes loaded later this week.
