Friends, let’s do this and help make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer!

Team Still Easier Than Chemo got CRABBY AT CANCER at yesterday’s Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon! Many thanks to Kevin for helping put cancer on the run and to everyone who supported Kevin’s fundraising campaign; 100 percent of every dollar you donated goes directly to fuel research at VCU Massey Cancer Center.

What an absolutely beautiful fall day for a run! Much unlike when I first ran this race two years ago, I couldn’t have asked for better weather, and it paid off because YOU GUYS! I knocked another 11 minutes off my personal best!

I went out thinking this was just another long training run (remember, the Big Fish is in November). Besides, I’d already put a check in the box for a new half mary PR at Rock ‘n’ Roll a month prior. The plan was to relax and enjoy the sunshine and the cool breeze coming off the James River.

When I crossed over the 10k split though I realized I was on pace to finish under 2:30 and thought, “There’s no way I’m giving up on this.”

I know some friends and family are still scratching their heads as to why I’ve taken up long-distance running. Kenny Moore says it best: “What I am doing — nobody cares. It’s just personal satisfaction.”

For me, running is so much more than personal records or finisher’s medals. I run to inspire others and to save lives. I run for those who cannot. I run because it is still easier than chemo.

Oh, and the celebratory beer. ;)
