Hey All! Thanks for leaving me so many thoughtful comments in my last series of posts. I think I may or may not have slightly indulged on my own feelings of guilt following the missed diagnosis. Well, I'm happy to report that Brenda has since checked into a residential treatment facility for ED and is on her way to recovery. Yay!
It's been a while since I've actually used this running blog to talk about running so I'm planning to update you all on the status of my marathon training. Look out for that in the next day or two.
In the meantime, I was made aware by a friend this morning that the National Marathon which is taking place in our nation's capital on March 20, 2010 is in desperate need of volunteers. They are a few thousand short! Wow...think about all the people that suffered and trained through the depths of this unforgiving winter. What would happen if they can't hold this race? Wouldn't that be so so horrible? As fellow half-marathon and marathon runners, I don't think we should let that happen. So if you are in the local area of Washington DC and have a free Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, please consider helping out! I know the runners will be so very grateful! I'm not running this event but I'm planning to travel down and help out (as long as I can rearrange my weekend hospital coverage responsibilities!) So even if no one there thanks you personally, I'll come by, say hi, and give you my autograph if you have something for me to sign. Haha! Who knows, if enough people show, I might lead a group run around the city.
The list of volunteer times and responsibilities is here. Please sign up if you can. If you can't, ask a friend who can. Then drop me a line in the comments and let me know so I can thank you more personally...maybe even with a gift? We'll see, we'll see!
Hope you all are having a fine week. I'll be back with an update soon!
