Just Do It

To show how much I believe in David's previous post, I have signed up for the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon this October. Get your jaws off the floor -- it's true.

For those of you who know me, you know I am not a runner. In fact, this image pretty accurately describes me:

But when you have cancer, nothing seems like a big deal anymore. What's a little run after you've been through chemo? If I have the endurance to beat cancer, I certainly have the endurance to run a half a marathon. Besides, in my glory days I used to be a pretty good athlete. Beer Pong counts as a sport, right?

I thought about  signing up for the whole damn thing, but I figured between all the juicing, raw food preparing, and yoga, who has time for a full marathon?

To hold me accountable to this, I have decided to run on behalf of the Make-a Wish Foundation. I'll be fundraising over the next nine months, so if anyone would like to support both me AND a good cause, you can donate on my page here.

Come on people, support the children.

Just Do It.


  1. SO Proud of you!!! Maybe I will train and come run it with you!

  2. I think we should all run with you!!

  3. You all should! I fully support and encourage this idea.
