Blood cancer awareness month

Goofy Training

Week Five, Day one

My schedule has four miles today but I’m having a family dinner in Arlington tonight and I know full well that trying to get up early to run before work on Monday will never happen. So I did my four miles yesterday afternoon since I stayed out too late Saturday night to get up and run in the morning. The run was in the pool again as my knees were still sore from Saturday’s hot and humid hill route, but hopefully that will be the last pool run of the season. I miss being out on the roads and am looking forward to the Katy Trail with my teammates tomorrow night! I’m also looking forward to cooler temperatures later this week.

As always, I’m asking for your support to help me meet my fundraising goals. September is blood cancer awareness month so here’s a fact you might not know: Nearly 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2013 were first approved for blood cancer patients. Many of these therapies have been found to work for other types of cancer as well as for other serious diseases. So your donations not only help leukemia and lymphoma patients but patients with other medical issues as well.

Any amount helps! How about $4 for the four miles I ran yesterday? How about $3 for the three interceptions Tony Romo threw in the first half of the first Cowboys game of the year? How about $73, one for every point the Aggies scored on Saturday?
