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!
