That's me with my dear friend Karen McIntyre from Central Florida. She came up for a visit on Friday, endured the heat and excitement of the State Meet, and has been wonderful to have around. We took a two-mile jog around the neighborhood early this morning when the temperature was a mere 70-75 degrees. Now it's around 90, which is pretty high for Little Rhody. Humid, too.
You might notice we're wearing Team in Training tops. That's because Karen has signed up to do the Team's Intracoastal Waterway Century Ride in October. That's 100 miles on a bike in the steamy Florida sun, all to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I've benefited from the Society in so many ways. Some I can put my finger on: discussion forums, teleconferences, prescription co-pay program; others are less tangible but extremely important: research for new therapies and ultimately, a cure.
Karen could use your help, and you don't even have to get on a bike! Visit Karen's website today and donate whatever you can to this worthy cause.
