I Joined Team In Training for the San Diego Rock & Roll Half Marathon

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the major beneficiary of the 2011 San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the major beneficiary of the 2011 San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon on June 5th 2011

Starting February 12th 2011 I will be beginning my training for my first ever marathon with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program.

Up until now I have been developing my running capabilities mostly by running by myself… and of course supported by my friends and family who have encouraged me all this time.   To run a marathon I just know it will take more than anything I have given to this so far.

This is NOT what I expected.. or even planned on doing.  I know I am not the only new runner who has experienced friends asking this question “So when are you going to run a marathon?”.   My standard answer was “Never”.

So… why the change?

You could call it fate.  In 2010 I produced a number of videos for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Orange County.   You can see some of them here.

While producing those videos I found myself being connected with all types of people who were committed to making a difference to the various blood cancers that afflict all age ranges.   If that wasn’t enough incentive – the LLS have one of the most active and well run training program specifically created to support people running in Marathons and other events – while at the same time raising much needed funds.

So… as my 2011 present to myself… I registered into the LLS Team In Training program for the San Diego Rock & Roll Half Marathon on

June 5th 2011.

I have set myself a goal of raising $10,000 for this worthy cause.

By supporting me in any way that you can – be that through your continued moral support – and especially through adding your donation you will all be running by my side – not just at the marathon… but EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

Thank you!
