Let's Talk Running and Breast Cancer!

This morning I will make my radio debut! Cyleste Coppage, the director of the first annual Clarksville Half Marathon and owner of R3 running store, invited me to join her to talk about breast cancer this morning on AM 1400. She has talked me into forming a team and running the 1/2 on November 7th. I'm hoping that I will still like her when I'm done running!! Just teasing.

I'm a little nervous about it, but I'm sure it will all be ok. My main objective is to encourage women to take charge of their health. Remember, 'when in charge, be in charge'!!! If you believe there is something going on with your body that isn't normal, make the doctors listen to you!! They work for you!!

We have to come up with a team name and logo for the 1/2, so if anyone has any ideas feel free to make them known. We used the name "Save the Boobies" for the Making Strides walk last October, so I want to come up with something as fun, but new.

Better run (no pun intended!) and have a second cup of coffee and get my act together. Have a beautiful day.

Love you all,

Lynne

Hey Lynne- do you know Donna Pittman? She goes to Grace Community and is an avid runner. I think she is even starting to train others. Her blog is http://themommyminute.blogspot.com
This sounds like something that she would be into! :)
And have fun on the radio.
