The marathon journey begins...

Tomorrow is my first group training run with the fall Team in Training group! However it is at 6:45am. For those of you who don't really know me, I don't usually move from my bed until 7 am (except for work). Luckily, the group training is in Greenwood, which is a hop, a skip, and a jump away. We're heading out for an hour run, so I guess it'll be roughly 6 miles for me. I'm hoping my watch (which my lovely hubster got for me) will help me accurately pace close to a 10min/mi pace. My goal is to remain close to that for the marathon in November.

For those of you, who wish to support me, here's the link:

If you read on that page, Lymphoma and I have a little bit of history. My mom beat Hodgkin's Lymphoma over 16 years ago, thanks in part to research done by Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She has been a huge supporter throughout my life, encouraging me to do things and live life like tomorrow could be your last. And while our group has an honored hero, I'm running this race for my mom, who will be here in Indy cheering me on.

Do you see what I mean? She is my biggest supporter in all things!
