Team in Training kick off

On Saturday I went to the Team in Training kick off. It was a lot more organized than the informational meeting I spoke of earlier. I signed up to train for Mayor's Midnight Sun Marathon and raise $4500 to fund The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. I haven't decided yet which goal is more intimidating, running a marathon or the fundraising. You can help me by donating online with your credit card here.

I went to my first team practice tonight. It was cold and raining, but it was very nice to run outside with other people. I only ran about four miles. I've been suffering from all kinds of goofy aches and pains in my legs and knees since I started to run. Amazing that I can get on a bike and go, go, go, but I run a few miles and I feel like an old man.
