Can You Run 26.2 Miles?

Can You Run 26.2 Miles? My wife Laura did just that for the first time yesterday – in the Vancouver International Marathon. She was one of nearly 50 New York City representatives of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training. Laura raised nearly $6,000 for blood cancer research (and many thanks to friends, colleagues and several readers of AttentionMax for contributing to that goal). The entire Team In Training group – including New York plus all other chapters here for the Vancouver marathon – raised over $1.3 million. I’m proud of Laura. The event made me think a lot about a number of friends and family who’ve struggled with cancer.

I posted pictures of the marathon weekend here. I’m sure Laura will update her running blog with a summary in the next couple days.

After a great weekend in beautifal Vancouver, it’s now back to New York and the daily grind for me.
