I started a newsletter that I will be sending out once a month as part of my DFMC fundraising. I left it was a good way to communicate with everyone. It is also a good way to remind people about donating. Many people have good intentions to give but then it gets shuffled to the bottle of a pile because life is just so busy.
I called it Mile 25 because it’s such an important mile during the marathon. I wrote a few entries in last year’s blog talking about Kenmore Square, the Citco sign and the last mile, but the biggest reason is it is where I know Brendon will be along with many other DFMC partners. It is such an inspiration place along the marathon. I’m tired, sore and ready to stop running, but after a quick stop full of sweaty hugs and high fives, I’m recharged.
Today I ran with the L St Running Club. It was a beautiful but cold 14 mile run through the Blue Hills. I stuck with my training plan and made sure I kept my pace slow. I’m surprised how good I felt after 41 miles this week. Monday starts a new training week. It will be a recovery week, which makes me very happy.
I’m looking to Thursday. Brendan begins his final round of chemo. Yea!! Sounds like a great excuse to go to Kiku Yama.
