Hello everyone,

Long time, no post!! As you may or may not know, I have decided to become a runner! Yep, that's right, a runner! NO LAUGHING!!!!! I'm very surprised that I have been able to be consistent in my training. This morning I upped my speed around our block of a mile. It felt good and I know small accomplishments like these will keep me going. Woody and I are running another 5k Saturday morning and will pick up the pace beginning this month as we look forward to November 7th and my first 1/2 marathon.

My friend and owner of R3 running store, Cyleste, is doing a blog on the local newspaper's website and needs to have me write something about my decision to begin running to regain my health after cancer. I'm unsure what to say at the point, but have to get my thoughts together quickly!

I have decided to kick into gear my plans to begin another breast cancer support group. There is one here in town and I have visited them once. They seem like an awesome bunch of survivors! However, I feel this calling to begin another one and along with my friend, Kelly, will do just that. Kelly is embarking on the tailend of her chemo treatments. She goes weekly and I plan to go with her on the 16th, which is her birthday! We are going to have a little "chemo birthday party"!! Her spirit is amazing and so is her smile. I am so proud to be her friend.

One thing I plan to incorporate into the new support group is reocognizing the caregivers. They are as much in need of support as we, the ones with cancer, are and I hope to show them their support is needed and appreciated by us.

I will close now. I have to get busy!!!

Love you all and happy running,
