this is it! in a couple of hours i’ll be boarding a plane for san francisco! this week i bought the new ipod nano (with video!) so that i can take it along to the race sunday. i’m still learning how to work it, and forgive my sweatiness in the video below, but hopefully this will give you a little glimpse into the excitement of what it’s like to be a part of this race.

today i look back on the last few months and how far we’ve come together! your donations raised over $3,400 so far for the leukemia society and hopefully by the time honolulu marathon rolls around in december we’ll be over the $4,000 mark! it’s amazing how many people have shown support this year, knowing the challenges we’ve all had to face with the economy. but i keep reminding myself that cancer doesn’t stop in a recession. people are being diagnosed daily, going through chemo daily, undergoing stem cell transplants, and fighting their way back to health… i can’t say how thankful i am that so many people have joined with me this year to help raise money for this cause. your support means the world to me, and we are moving closer and closer to finding a cure with every dollar and every mile…

off we go… see you in san francisco!!
