So, if you've followed me long you know that I like to run. Really, I love to run. It's the only athletic thing I've ever done actually, so finishing multiple half marathons has been a HUGE accomplishment for me.
In April of 2009 I ran the Country Music half marathon (my second) with Team in Training (TNT) to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. I did it because some of my runner friends, who had encouraged me a lot, had just lost a friend to Leukemia after only a month. I thought it was the least I could do. It was AWESOME!!!! If you like to fund-raise, run, and have a great time, you should totally do a race with TNT, the support and encouragement you get is unmatched and the money goes to help people who are affected by blood cancers, for research, monetary help, etc. I personally loath fund-raising and so probably won't ever do that again (never say never). Since then I just like to donate money to TNT for my friends running their races.
Anyhow, here's a cool opportunity to support TNT...
Virtual 5K for TNT
I'm all over this as the money goes to a great cause, it's not too much and gives a sense of unity without anyone having to travel! I encourage anyone who likes to run to participate in this event, just go to the link, read about it and sign up--easy peasy!
