I'm More Than Halfway There!

I've been badly neglecting this blog because I've been a bit pre-occupied with my marathon and fundraising these days. However, I'm happy to report that I'm more than halfway there, both training distance-wise and fundraising-wise!

I've been a bit better about updating my marathon blog, Crawl, Carol, CRAWL!!! at lately. If you hop over there, you can read not only about my progress, but about my adventures and misadventures along the way, and you get the added bonus of seeing some goofy-looking pictures of me in my running attire. You can also check out my Crawl, Carol,CRAWL!!! shop
( while you're there.

Since I last updated this blog, I've participated in my first 10K race (I came in 3,448th out of 3,464, which actually isn't bad, considering that I entered as a walker, and not as a runner), have walked the distance of a half marathon (and lived to tell about it), and have been totally amazed at the kindness and generosity of total strangers. The Universe seems to be totally with me on this effort! Equally amazing are the cancer survivors among our team members. They blow me away and they can kick some serious butt, too!

I still have a long way to go before marathon day, but two years and 85 lbs ago, I never would've thought any of this was even remotely possible! If you would like to make a donation to help support the efforts of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training on my behalf, you may do so at Thanks!

Have a facebook page? Want to help a good cause?

As mentioned in my last post, I signed up to walk in the TNT Walt Disney World Marathon with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training. I am walking in memory of my late friend, actor Cliff Gorman, who died from leukemia in 2002. At some point, they will also match me up with an honored participant who is someone either currently facing the disease or someone currently in remission.

I have a very ambitious (as in $3,700) fundraising goal to meet between now and December.

If you can help me get the word out and support my efforts by placing a widget on your facebook page, that would be totally awesome! It's easy to do:

Just go to

On the right-hand side is the option to add the widget to your page in support of a friend. My fundraising page address to enter into the box is is

Allow the application to access your profile, etc. and when it takes you to your facebook page, click the "keep" button to add it to your page. When it's done, you should see a Team in Training box on your facebook profile.

If you have a blog or web page and would be so good as to add a link like this to my Team in Training page, that would help tremendously, too!

Me??? A Marathon Woman??? - Please support Carol as she trains to walk in her first marathon to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training.

Thanks a million! Your moral support throughout this is priceless!

My Latest Adventure... A MARATHON???

Yup, that's right! I've taken leave of my senses and signed up to walk a marathon. As in a 26.2 MILE marathon for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training.

Between now and the weekend of January 10, 2010, I will be training to walk a full marathon in my favorite place on earth, Walt Disney World. I'll also be working to raise $3,700.00 to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am walking in memory of my late friend Cliff Gorman, who died from leukemia in 2002.

Please visit my Team in Training Page at

for updates, info and to make a donation in support of my efforts.

Anything you can do to help me get the word out, and raise needed funds in this challenge will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
