I teach Cycling at a local gym. It's so fun! I mentioned that Rev3 is Running Across America last week and a lot of people came up to me after class to tell me how amazing this was or to tell me that I am certifiably insane. :) They asked a lot of questions about the logistics and the training and that was that.
This week after class I was on the floor doing some strength training and a couple named John and Lois approached me. They are fairly new to my class so this was the first time I was really talking to them. John wanted to tell me that he looked up the run online and was impressed and thankful. He lost both his sister and his best friend many years ago when they were all in their late 20s.
Doors are opening and connections are being made because of this run. It makes me feel even more motivated to get out there and train, to work out the logistics and to ask.. over and over for your generous contributions to this cause. I know that each of you has had an experience with cancer whether directly or indirectly.
Please share your stories if you wish! And stay tuned for opportunities to get even more involved in this crazy adventure! We want everyone to feel like they are part of this. We are ALL in a battle against cancer whether we like it or not!
