Free To Run

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

Dear Friends:

Thank you so much for your support so far. It has been a big help towards achieving my goal.

I am still $1645.00 away from my goal of raising $2400.00 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

My re-commitment date has been extended to the end of this month. Re-commitment is when everyone is asked to access whether they are able to raise the set goal and continue on to the finale – 2009 Walt Disney World Marathon. Please do what you can to help. No donation is too small or too great. You gift is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt from the organization. I really want to be able to see this through to the end for obvious reasons.

December 7th is fast approaching and this is where I will participate in the half (13.1 miles) of the Palm Beaches. I will keep you informed of the actual time and the location in case you desire to come out and support the cause by cheering us on.

Recovery Update:

I was finally released to run again this passed week on a trial basis. I was so excited the podiatrist did not know what to make of me. I am so bored with walking. The x-ray did not show a fracture; however we know that something is not normal. The next step is to gradually start running and then go back in two weeks for a bone scan. Walk or Run – I’ll do it for the patients and families of patients fighting this up hill struggle.

No Stilettos but Lots of RICE

Training Update: Sat. September 20, 2008:

This weekend, due to an injury, I trained with the Marathon Walk Team. I guess, “I’m not as young as I use to be”, as one person said it. I have been sentenced to not run for at least 1-1/2 weeks. I must say, although the people on the walk team were friendly and inviting, the training itself lacked luster for me. I was broken hearted when I saw the run team zooming by; but if I am to run again another day, in the meantime, I must RICE – Rest, Ice, Compress and Elevate. As for next weekend I will be tapping the pavement with the walkers once more. During the week I will maintain my cardio fitness level by cycling or swimming. After speaking with one of my coaches, I feel confident that I will be able to fall back in line with my teammates with a little extra effort.
