Why I do what I do

It's not always cynicism and hysterics around here.  Some days are made to be sentimental.

Today is one of those days.

Do you want to know why I run? 
Why I am truly passionate about running. 
Why I spend oodles of money on shoes that get me through 10 mile days? 
Why I do what I do?

I do it because I can.
And because there are people out there who can't.
Because they are sitting in a chemo treatment room.
Or sitting in a doctor's office nervously waiting the news of their MRI.
Or undergoing surgery to remove malignant tumors.

I do it because 9 years ago I lost a best friend.
I run because I don't know what else I can do to help combat cancer.
I run because I want to keep her spirit alive.
I run in memory of her.

I train with Team In Training.
And this is my tribute.
