5K for lung cancer research

Life has been complicated and unbloggable. However, my health remains good. I keep having one clean CAT scan after another.

I’ve been working up to running a 5K, using the Couch to 5K running program. I am very slow (some people walk faster than I run), but kind of excited that I can now run slowly for almost 30 minutes continuously. It helps me with anxiety, stress, and sleep. It gets me outdoors in the fresh air. I marvel at being able to breathe that fresh air.

My goal is to complete the Philadelphia Free to Breathe 5K on Sunday, November 2. If you’d like to sponsor me, run with me, or walk, please click on the link below!
