On Monday, Mark and I participated in the Franklin Classic. I ran the 10k and the 5k. Yes, I know it seems a little ridiculous to run both races, but it was only $5 more to do both and since I'm training for a full, it seemed like a good idea to do both. Luckily, I was able to convince Gail that she needed to do both too, so I didn't seem like a total crazy person, well at least I wasn't the only crazy person. I'm also so proud of Nicole and Jeanie who did both races too!
Mark and I will be running our first marathon this October in Dublin with Team in Training. We have to raise $10,000 in order to participate. All the money we raise benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which is a charity we've actively supported and volunteered with the last few years. Leukemia is the most common childhood cancer. Please help us find a cure. Visit our website to make a donation and for more information. http://pages.teamintraining.org/tn/dublin11/emilymark
