Walk

On Saturday, my wife and I woke up and took separate paths to the South Street Seaport for the Lymphomathon Walk. My wife cruised down the west side path on her cool new Specialized all tricked out with fenders, a bell and rack. I, on the other hand, had a training session on the calendar and decided to run the 7 or so miles from our upper west side apartment.
If you have never been to NYC, running around the island is amazing. I headed south on the path, passing the WTC site, into Battery Park and up around to the east side and the seaport. There are so many amazing stories in this city and running through and around here away shows me a different side to this place I call home.
The Lymphomathon is a walk to support the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF). My father-in-law was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma this past December and has been undergoing chemotherapy. It has been a very trying time for her family and so we all committed to raising money and walking in the Lymphomathon. Hazel's Team is what we went by and our team raise the most out of all the teams - over $25,000!
It was a great day for the walk and very inspiring to see my father-in-law in such good spirits.
