A Whole New Season, A Whole New Reason


In Memory of Grandma Benyshek

Well it's been almost three months and I am back into training for the Chicago Marathon and back to blogging about the process towards my second marathon!

While I will have a future post early next week regarding my first month of training, today's post is about why I am raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and why it means so much to me.  When I first joined Team in Training about seven months, I can honestly say it was more about the running aspect that happened to be paired with a good cause. Up until that point I had been fortunate enough not to have known anyone with cancer. Unfortunately this all changed two weeks ago when we found out my Granny had cancer. It was highly metastasized and within a matter of ten days of diagnosis, the cancer took her away. 

Since it was so aggressive it is unknown what type of cancer she actually had but regardless it is something that no one else should have to experience. This season I am raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma in memory of her and in hopes that there will one day be a cure which will prevent many others from losing their loved ones in this manner. Please join me in journey by donating to:


Thank you so much and rest in peace Granny B!!
