Welcome! And thanks for stopping by! My name is Maddy and I originally created this blog to track my progress as I trained for the Chicago Half Marathon in September 2011 and tried to raise $1000 for the Children’s Cancer Association. Both were a great success! I ran my second half with Team in Training and raised $1500 for the fight to find a cure for blood cancers. My biggest running triumph was the Portland Marathon in October 2012 with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training and raising another $1500. Then I busted my Lisfranc ligament, went to nursing school, had a screw put in my foot, and didn’t post anything for a year and a half (in that order). I have no idea where this blog is going now, but hold on tight, it will probably be a wild ride.
