Race for Life, Seattle Running and Other Matters0

First of all, I would like to congratulate my friend, Joy Dye, on her decision to run her first 5k race on July 17, 2005! As if running her race isn’t enough, Joy is also raising money for cancer research through Great Britain’s Race for Life program. I am always a fan of those who run in order to make a difference. 🙂 Joy is a wonderful person with a good heart, and we all know how important cancer research is, right? If you would like to contribute to Joy’s “race for life,” you can do so by clicking here.

Second, I have registered for the Seattle Half-Marathon, which will take place on November 27, 2005. Dick and Sandy, two kind and dedicated runners I have “known” only in an online context for the past four years, are traveling to the Emerald City for the event, and inquired as to whether I wished to join them. I believe this will be a terrific way to submerge myself in Seattle’s running culture, but I need to adjust to the hills before the day arrives!

I had been running short distances slowly about a month ago, until a friend reminded me that the orthopedist told me to take several months off. Even though I was feeling pretty good, I decided to listen to him and wait until June to run.

Back to unpacking the numerous boxes in my beautiful new home. Seattle is such an intriguing place, and I already feel very much at ease here. So here’s to the future!
