|Run for your life!|
Life has been so busy lately. In all of that craziness, I’ve still gotten a chance to consistently work on my goal for this month.
This month, I’ve pledged to run 28 times for 28 days in February to raise money for cancer awareness. If I miss a day of running, I can double up another day.
Why this month? I decided to do this to raise money and continue to get in shape for the races I’m running in for Colon Cancer Awareness Month in March. You can read about my motivation in my last post here.
I’ve decided to switch up my workouts between long runs, sprint workouts, hills, and intervals. I’m also incorporating other workouts such as weight-lifting, Zumba, calisthenics, and various workout DVDs. I will also pay attention to my body & rest when necessary.

I joined Team Massey, to benefit the VCU Massey Cancer Center, because I wanted to help an organization that is doing something to actively fight cancer & be part of an organization that I could visit easily if I wanted to.
I was inspired by another blogger, Briana of Still Easier Than Chemo, who’s story I can definitely relate to. She decided to fight cancer by running a half-marathon every month for a year. Briana believes that no mater how hard each race is, it’s still easier than going through chemotherapy.

In March, I’m planning to run the colon cancer awareness Chris4Life 5K race in Washington D.C. with family and friends followed by the Ukrop’s Monument Ave 10K race in Richmond. I’ve run these distances before, but I want to do my best for the cause.

I’m happy to be able to run for such a great cause. This is only the beginning of my journey to “put cancer on the run!”
